  1. SSC student meeting with F&S Building Maintenance staff

    I'm from the Student Sustainability Committee. This year, we are interested in funding a project that will utilize students to help to achieve the University goal of weatherizing campus buildings.  Suhail Barot pointed me to you as good people to talk with to start a conversation about what F & S would be looking for in regards to such a program and getting ideas going to submit in response to the Committee's RFP.I'm from the Student Sustainability Committee.

  2. Green Roof Metrics Class

    The Student Sustainability Committee funded a the Green Roof Metrics Class Project, which will support class projects to assess the impact on sustainability of the green roof on the new Business Instructional Facility. Students in Professor Werth's Hazardous Waste Management course in Spring 2009 and Sustainable Urban Engineering course in Fall 2009 will make measurements of the filtration and thermal properties of the green roof. Hopefully, these projects will also help establish the roof as a laboratory for future student and faculty research projects on this topic. The SSC gave $13,100 in funding.
