Living Lab Campus
At RRC, we know education is the root of transformative change. When our students graduate, we hope that they will take the sustainability values and teachings they acquire here and apply them to their personal and professional lives outside of the College.
Our office routinely works with students on applied learning projects to further sustainability at the College while also offering hands-on practical experience. This concept of “campus as a living lab” aligns with the mission of the College:
Together, we learn, teach, challenge, innovate and find solutions to build a better future.
Interested in partnering with our office on an applied project? See the possible future projects list below or contact us to talk about your own idea. Our office can work with individual students on applied projects, or partner with entire classes for projects.
