Like many institutions and individuals across the country, colleges and universities face tightening budgets and shrinking financial resources. However, this predicament also presents an opportunity for schools to reevaluate their energy use and environmental impact while equipping students with practical skills for the workplace. For example, through building retrofit projects, universities can reduce their operating costs and save on utilities, create partnerships between staff, facilities, and students, and generate real-life data for economics, business, and engineering classes. Additionally, universities can invigorate regional businesses and supply chains by sourcing food from local farms and expanding sustainable transportation options. This panel will explore how to create the maximum economic and ecological benefit for students, the campus, and the greater community.
