Optional Evening Tour:
Washington University
Wednesday, October 6

Photo of Earth and Planetary Sciences Building at Washington UniversitySet amid a thriving metropolitan region, Washington University benefits from the vast array of social, cultural, and recreational opportunities offered by the St. Louis area. Counted among the world's leaders in teaching and research, the university recently opened an impressive 151,180 square-foot Earth and Planetary Sciences (EPSc) Building that houses the research and investigative activities of the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences.

As one of the few departments in the country that makes direct use of knowledge gained by exploring the solar system, the EPSc Building was designed with careful consideration of its impact on natural resources. Designed using a holistic approach, the building opened in the summer of 2004 and is LEED™ registered with the U.S. Green Building Council.

Participants enjoyed a tour highlighting several of the facility's sustainable elements. Following the tour, attendees reflected on the day's sessions during a reception at Whitaker Hall.
