As EMU plans its new science center, the school hopes to take going green to the next level with the possibility of green roofs, improved wastewater management and a green design class.
Tuesday morning, EMU students, faculty and staff discussed how green the new science center should go. EMU officials say they are working on combining their goals with the reality of limited resources.
The forum Tuesday hosted presenters who spoke about their goals for going green and what they hope to focus on.
"We're particularly interested today in talking about green technologies, and this fits very much with our vision and mission as an institution to live sustainably and respect God's creation," says Andrea Wenger, the Director of Marketing and Communications for EMU.
The green class at EMU is already part of the curriculum, and those students will have an input on how green the science center goes.
