As a UW-Madison student, I'm glad to hear that my school is heading in the right direction as far as green and energy efficient building. Just this past July, the Nancy Nicholas Hall (the new home of the School of Human Ecology) received a LEED Gold Certification and was verified by the Green Building Certification Institute (Read more here). Also, UW-Madison recently named a new residence hall after Aldo Leopold, which features energy efficient construction, solar panels, along with electricity and water consumption monitors (Read more here). So after learning about some of the projects UW-Madison has been working on, I’m curious to learn what green and sustainable actions the other UW schools have been taking. If anyone knows about other UW school projects and where I can find more information about them, please respond to this post.
