SIUE Science Building West Attains LEED Silver Certification



SIUE's $52 million Science Building West has received the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) stamp of approval as a Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Silver-level project for its energy-friendliness. LEED Silver is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices.

The new facility, completed last fall, is the fourth building on SIUE's campus to be certified by the USGBC at this point with more certifications forthcoming, according to Rich Walker, assistant vice chancellor for administration. In September 2013, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) also certified SIUE's Art and Design Building as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold building.

Cougars on the Move



SIUE Cougars from across the United States recently gathered together for a weekend in Washington, D.C. We enjoyed the beautiful sights of the National Cherry Blossom Festival and participated in a welcome reception, capitol tour, fireworks and dinner cruise, and a deliciously elegant brunch at Old Ebbitt Grill.
