Antioch College—in partnership with peer institutions Oberlin College, Albion College, DePauw University, and Hope College—was awarded a grant from the Great Lakes College Association (GLCA) as part of their “Expanding Collaboration Initiative” for 2015-2016. The project sponsored the introduction of Environmental Dashboard technology developed at Oberlin College as a digital platform to foster collaboration between faculty, students and staff across the participating campuses. The Environmental Dashboard is a communication technology that combines real-time display of water and electricity use in buildings, organizations and whole communities with photographs and ideas on environmental thoughts and actions contributed by community members.

Beth Bridgeman, Instructor of Cooperative Education, collaborated with the University of Dayton, Sinclair Community College and Wittenberg University on a sustainability residency on Closing the Human Nutrient Cycle: Capturing Urine for Fertilizer through Source Separation. She also collaborated with The Ohio State University on the InFACT series: a statewide seed-saving and seed sustainability initiative, hosting one of the four regional workshops.
