Written by: Jessica BehnhamTexas Tech University's College of Architecture has launched a Web site detailing information about its two-day symposium and workshop April 15-16 that aims to create a more environmentally friendly campus. The site, http://www.arch.ttu.edu/greencampus/schedule.htm, displays information about the various workshops and panel discussions that will take place during the two-day event. The goal of the symposium is to develop a green action plan that is backed by Texas Tech administration and facilities planners and can be implemented to help reduce energy usage and paper waste on campus. Through a series of panel discussions and workshops led by two nationally recognized experts in green campuses and economies, event organizers hope to glean input from students, staff and faculty with expertise in fields such as sustainable design, engineering, economics and water conservation before hunkering down with university managers and leaders to hammer out a green campus action plan.
