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:
Morrison Residence Hall houses the Sustainability Living Learning Community. Students living in this theme house seek to understand and appreciate the motivations behind and possibilities of sustainability by: exploring their own values, assumptions, and awareness regarding sustainable living and incorporating that exploration towards personal, communal, and external education and outreach initiatives.
The Sustainability Living Learning Community is structured into three areas: Educational, Community Involvement & Service, and Social Opportunities. Through weekly discussions, keeping a blog about their efforts toward living sustainably, on- and off-campus experiential opportunities, and outreach/education, students who participate in the Sustainability Community learn more about their own identity and how that identity relates to the larger global picture.

“Living-Learning Communities” are UNC Residence Hall Association’s housing themes. There are nine others in addition to Sustainability.
