ABOUT THE EVENT

As the Vanderbilt University campus grows and develops, increasing emphasis is placed on ensuring that growth is managed in a sustainable way. Many of the new buildings on campus are LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified, and many historic campus facilities are being renovated to become more environmentally friendly as well. We'll take a tour of several campus buildings, including the recently renovated Alumni Hall and the natural gas power plant, which was recently converted from a coal-fired plant within the last year. Campus sustainability officials and campus architects will be on-hand to lead the tour and answer any questions you might have about Vanderbilt's sustainability initiatives!

Meet at the Vanderbilt Central Library at 6pm!
