Sustainability – What is it? You’ve probably heard that Ball State University has been nationally recognized for sustainability programs and initiatives. At this session, you’ll learn about current sustainability efforts at BSU from Robert J. Koester, AIA LEED AP, a BSU Professor of Architecture. He is also Founding Director of the Center for Energy Research / Education / Service (CERES). Robert will also outline planned sustainability projects, both short-range and long-range.
