Ecological Education

Cornell’s Human Ecology building reflects the character of the practice that goes on inside, with a high consideration of ecology in the design of the building itself. Inside, the new facilities are used for nutritional sciences studies, fiber science and apparel design, human development, design and environmental analysis, and policy management. Thoughtfully housing these practices is a LEED Platinum rated building, with a green roof, salvaged furniture and re-used inventory, low energy materials, and an electric vehicle charging station.
