Sustainable research and student engagement on campus
Aspiring to improve upon and learn from sustainable campus initiatives, architects, engineers and campus facilities are continually seeking to monitor and evaluate systems and installation outcomes on college campuses.
Residence life staff from three LEED Gold residence halls, along with the designing architect, present outcomes regarding ongoing research initiatives for water and energy use, systems performance and assessment of student satisfaction and behaviors in all three residence halls.
The panel also touches upon how the research is informing future building design and energy modeling, as well as student engagement in active learning opportunities. The panel shares and discusses specific outcomes of a three-year plus research project that exposed the actual outcomes of the building design relative to the original sustainable objectives.
