AugustanaCampus

Augustana Campus solar-thermal project, University of Alberta.

301 views 6 months ago
On May 25, 2010, Augustana unveiled 10 solar-thermal panels on the roof of our Convocation Centre. The panels will end up relieving 20 to 30 per cent of the Cafeteria and Gym's water-heating requirements that formerly relied exclusively on non-renewable sources.

This project speaks to the triple bottom line of sustainability: environmental, economic and social sustainability. The use of this viable, renewable resource is one of the environmental benefits of such a project. Economic benefits will be seen as soon as the energy savings exceed the capital cost of the project. Finally, as an academic institution there is great potential for learning from this technology and leading by example within our community and beyond. With this project and many others like it, Augustana is demonstrating its commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility.




Funds for the project came from a number of sources. These include private donations to the Augustana Sustainability Fund and significant support from Viessmann Solar Systems. Further, the Class of 2010, having spent four years on this campus, wanted to leave a legacy at Augustana and donated to the project as well. Show less

Annual Academic Theme Events Play

The annual theme will be explored in many ways throughout the year:

• Several guest speakers will be invited to present their ideas to the Augustana community, both through public lectures and as guest presenters in selected classes.

• Some Augustana faculty members will present public lectures related to the annual theme as part of a colloquium series. Others will write articles about the theme for the local newspapers. Many will include discussion of the theme in selected courses.

• Students will be encouraged to focus on the annual theme in independent study courses or group seminars, and to present the results of their work in a student conference.

• A reading list is available with suggested books and articles for private or group study, ranging from history books to novels, from academic papers to popular fiction. A viewing list of movies and links to web sites related to the theme are also provided.

Augustana Campus Model UN Play

In winter 2008, 25 students at the Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta enrolled in Political Studies 248/348: Model United Nations. Not only did the course introduce students to the workings of the United Nations, but part of the course content was participating at the National Model United Nations simulation in New York city.

The course offered students from all disciplines the opportunity to gain "real world" experience in the areas of research, negotiation, diplomacy, policy writing, and international networking.
