“At this time of increasing interest in sustainability science, we feel we need to make a strong commitment to supporting those students who have chosen America’s Environmental College to launch their careers in high-growth green industries,” Unity College President Dr. Melik Peter Khoury said. “That means supplying state-of-the-industry housing and academic spaces that support learning, community, and sustainability.”
