Westchester Community College Receives Con Edison Grant
Valhalla, NY - Con Edison has awarded a $25,000 grant to Westchester Community College to expand the Con Edison Green Faculty Learning Community.First funded last year, this is an ongoing effort to integrate sustainability throughout various curricula at the college.
The project was initially funded by Con Edison in 2010. The expansion will allow the college to recruit additional faculty and to expand its effort to include staff and administrators directly involved with college operations. The project will have a college-wide impact as the institution builds a sustainability curriculum library including online resources, present expert speakers, facilitate peer-to-peer learning, and create a guide to help faculty integrate “green” information into courses. Through the Learning Community project, students will gain both an understanding of environmental science and will learn how sustainability can be incorporated into their fields of current study and later in the workplace.
The grant reflects Con Edison’s active interest in building awareness of sustainability issues and the college’s deep commitment to environmental stewardship. “Westchester Community College is truly our community’s college and is a leader in education regarding various aspects of sustainability,” says Marc Huestis, Vice President of Construction, Con Edison. “We are excited about this important project and are pleased that we are able to continue our support,” adds Huestis, who is also a member of the Westchester Community College Foundation Board.
