We’re revitalizing the campus and furthering our commitment to sustainability.
Working to build a sustainable education environment is one of the goals for Antioch College. After the doors opened again in 2011, Antioch College explored techniques for implementation to create a campus that is sustainable for students, the environment, and the local community.
Carrying out these tasks means updating several buildings on our campus. North Hall, for example, had solar panels installed to provide energy to the building. After the installation, the building received a LEED Gold certificate and serves as an example of what Antioch is striving to create. It also holds the title of being the second oldest building in the world to earn LEED Gold Certificate. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the foremost program for buildings, homes, and communities designed, constructed, maintained, and operated for improved environmental and human health performance.
Our hope is to model the true meaning of integrated, interdisciplinary instruction at the heart of our campus while limiting our physical footprint and maximizing space allocation. Several additional projects are in the works to continue this initiative. Currently, that list includes starting the second phase of the Arts and Science building and completing the Wellness Center, the Foundry Theater, and the Geothermal Central plant.
Similar projects will continue, giving Antioch College a sustainable and green campus that will ensure an environment that will encourage growth.
