Of all the solutions presented this quarter, green building may be uniquely be the most popularly advertised yet most under-studied by the average college student, or ‘building user.’ This lecture will present an introduction to the modern conceptualization of green building in terms of foundational concepts, processes and industry standards; an overview of the growth of green building in higher education; and, finally, an in-depth look at green building on UCI’s campus. The goals, policies, and success stories of the campus will be discussed as well as the campus’s historic, current and projected future relationship with green building.
