Virginia Tech at the Forefront of Sustainability Issues

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Townside

I've written before about Virginia Tech's focus on energy research and sustainability, even going so far as to say that the university's focus on these issues is a nice example of putting their money where their mouth is, with no outside pressure.  And I believe that.

And appointments such as these lead me to believe it even more.  Sure, Dr. Leo's appointment is one that is made to further the university's research advancement goals and bring in more money, but you can bet they'll be putting much of these initiatives in place right here on campus. 

Kudos to Dr. Leo and Virginia Tech.  Once again, Inventing the Future.

Good to know. Here in Asheville, Warren Wilson College is GREEN...I'm thinking we could do a survey to see what colleges in various areas are incorporating the GREEN concepts so important to the future of their students...

I kow there are schools across the country that are taking it seriously, and making changes because it's the right thing to do and NOT because of public pressure or misguided intentions.  That's nice to see.
