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