Ohio University

Sustainable Living Hub

The Sustainable Living Hub is led by Dr. Kim Thompson, Associate Professor in Environmental & Plant Biology. 

 

The Sustainable Living Hub focuses on the sustainability themes of food, transportation, grounds and student life.

Dr. Thompson's key initiative will be the development of green roofs on campus, exemplified by the new Schoonover Center green roof.

Other Sustainable Living Hub initiatives:

Dr. Theresa Moran, the previous Sustainable Living Hub Coordinator, led an initiative to advance OHIO's institutional procurement of regional food and, on a parallel track, advance the OHIO Student Farm (338 West State St., Athens, OH  45701) as a site of interdisciplinary and experiential learning.  The Farm to OHIO Working Group which evolved from these efforts will continue as a partnership with Culinary Services, the Center for Campus and Community Engagement, Community Food Initiatives and Rural Action, funded by the Sugar Bush Foundation.
