The Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources seeks to become a leading national center for sustainability, science, and natural resources, emphasizing new interdisciplinary and traditional disciplines including ecological economics, conservation biology, watershed science and management, ecological design and planning, spatial analysis, and ecosystem health.
Renovations to and expansion of the George D. Aiken Center at the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources included use of natural light and ventilation, water conservation, on-site waste water treatment and reuse, low-flow or waterless toilets, and sensing water faucets, energy conservation (efficient lighting fixtures, use of LED lighting), and use of recycled and renewable building materials.
The Renovation & Addition To The George D. Aiken Center is on track to receive LEED Gold certification but is currently aspiring to receive LEED Platinum certification.
