Program Coordinator for Student Civic Engagement
Department of Student & Campus Life
Does the institution have sustainability-themed housing (residential floor or hall, or theme house) where residents learn about sustainability together and to which residents must apply?:
A brief description of the themed housing:
The Greenhouse Living Learning Community focuses on advancing sustainability among its residents. The programming model for this LLC, which regularly involves other student leaders, staff, and faculty, is centered around sustainability and community-building. A unique separate-stream recycling station is in place for this community as is an indoor compost machine. As members of the Greenhouse LLC, students experience sustainability in action by sharing knowledge, developing new perspectives, and generating ideas in this exciting community that explores what it means to be a responsible steward of the environment, and our world. Members of this community use the local region to learn about the many components of sustainability while putting ideas into practice.
