New minor in sustainability studies underscores going green

A new minor in sustainability studies lends energy and coordination to a wide variety of courses that feature ideas, projects and policies for better stewardship of the world.

“Interest in sustainability education is growing among faculty and certainly among students, so we are hoping to add more choices, and we also are hoping to have students involved in projects so they can get experience while they are here,” said Lisa Glidden, assistant professor of political science and an adviser to students in the minor.

Contractors have drilled the 240th and final geothermal well to help heat and cool the new Science and Engineering Innovation Corridor.

“With that, this completes over 22.7 miles of drilling and [nearly] 46 miles of piping that went into the wells,” said Allen Bradberry, pictured far right, the college’s liaison with construction companies working on the sciences project.
