Greenbelt Community Goals & Learning Outcomes
Greenbelt Community Goals:
To encourage residents to live a lifestyle that embraces the concept of sustainability (i.e. learn more about sustainable living practices, attempt to reduce my energy consumption, recycle).
To foster interactions among community members by requiring residents to attend Greenbelt community wide events at least once a month.
To provide intentionality to the living/learning experience of residents by having them work with faculty and staff to determine the specific programs activities which will serve as the educational foundation for the community.
To develop residents into sustainability leaders on campus who can role model sustainable living techniques for the rest of the Furman community.
To assess students’ knowledge and perceptions regarding sustainability and how that may change over the course of living in this community.
Residents will be able to articulate what is meant by the concept of sustainability.
Residents will understand what their own impact is on the environment.
Residents will learn how to live a more sustainable lifestyle and will understand various practices for living sustainably.
