Faculty Wins Sustainability Grant

Anita Lee-Post and her team (Brent Sturlaugson and Bruce Swetnam from Architecture, Rebekah Radtke from Interior Design, and Yoonbai Kim from Economics) received the University's 2017 sustainability challenge grant to fund a research project, “Measuring Up: Sustainability Assessment of Campus Buildings at the University of Kentucky”.  The goals of the project are (1) to expand the definition and evaluation of sustainability in the built environment to include environmental, social, and economic factors, and (2) to create a comprehensive metric that considers triple bottom line impacts.
