Clarkson University Civil Engineering Students Teaching Envision to Community

Click the link below for a great article about students using Envision to engage with their community on sustainable projects. These future engineers are leading the way.

Article Excerpt:
“‘I really wanted the opportunity to teach, not only students but also the public, more about sustainability, and, in particular, the Envision rating system by the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure,” said Connor Kilmer, explaining that community outreach is a key component of Envision. ‘The community members are the people that are going to have to live with the final product. So to get as much input as possible as to what they want is a huge part of sustainability. As future engineers, my classmates and I want to make sure that what we are designing is what the community will enjoy for generations to come.'”

The meeting focused on the extension of the Maple City Trail over the Oswegatchie River utilizing the abandoned Black Bridge Railroad Trestle.
