A brief description of the institution’s program(s) to encourage student research in sustainability:
Student's in the Environmental Science and Earth Science curriculums are encouraged in several ways to conduct research and scholarly activities in sustainability research. Environmental Science students have conducted research sampling of our stormwater retention ponds to determine impacts of parking lot runoff to local streams. Earth Science students are paid by Environmental Health and Safety and Facilities and Planning to conduct GPS/GIS surveys or our stormwater collection system. Several students have been through this process and we continue to update and improve our mapping of environmental infrastructures. Students are also involved in labeling of stormwater drainage systems.
