Event / Workshop - Campus as a Living Lab: Using the Built Environment to Revitalize College Education

This event will take place on October 4, 2013 at St Clair Community College, Port Huron, MI.  The American Association of Community Colleges’ SEED Center is hosting the Campus as a Living Lab: Using the Built Environment to Revitalize College Education. This is a workshop for colleges that are greening their campuses and are interested in how to use these projects as real-world teaching tools for students.

The workshop will host national experts from the institutions highlighted in the SEED Center's most recent report. It will work with participants to develop their own campus living lab action plans.

Siemens Industry, Inc. and the new NSF BEST Center will be co-hosting this event and ready to form partnerships with your colleges. This event is FREE for AACC SEED colleges and travel stipends are available for early registrants.
