Will Vill North is exemplary for features that highlight “sustainable living” where the focus is on building community in and within a focus of greening the campus. The vision for the area is in active development, with a new state-of-the-art Village Center opening in January 2017. The building itself is certified LEED Platinum and provides residents the following benefits:
Freshman who are interested in pursuing knowledge around issues of sustainability, and gaining skills through smaller classes and peer interaction, through the perspective of a wide variety of disciplines, are encouraged to choose our program in the LEED certified Williams Village North Residence Hall, a home and a learning, living “laboratory”. Broad interest in these issues are all that you need; the idea is to involve you in ways that enable you to begin making more refined academic choices here at the University.
In partnership with the SbD (Sustainable by Design) RAP, also located here at Williams Village, we are developing more upper level courses that further the technical skills and communications skills of participants. There are long-term projects and teaching/learning opportunities associated with the building and in Williams Village that will involve CU students throughout their studies. More independent studies and internships will be developed over time.
