Name of Engagement
East Campus Hillside Naturalization Tour
College of Integrated Science and Engineering
Campuses can leverage their facilities and operations investments to directly support student education by expanding the vision of the role of the grounds. The East Campus Hillside project transformed a typically managed lawn area into a natural educational landscape that diversifies the campus aesthetic, approaches the landscape as an ecosystem, provides educational space outside, and demonstrates environmental stewardship. Partners: Scholar-in-Residence Michael Singer, and members of the College of Health and Behavioral Sciences, Department of Integrated Science and Technology, and Department of Biology.
