The Schoonover Center, home of the Scripps College of Communication at Ohio University’s main campus in Athens, Ohio, will be upgraded with the addition of a green roof in the Spring of 2020. The vegetated roof will promote an increase in energy efficiency, slower precipitation run-off rates, an increase in biodiversity, and a higher quality of air surrounding the Schoonover Center in uptown Athens and provide a unique learning and research environment. The roof will further Ohio University’s commitment to sustainability and take a great leap forward in achieving the institutional goals of education, outreach, and research. This project will offer various ecosystem services and the opportunity for students from a wide range of programs, both graduate and undergraduate, a hands-on learning experience. Once installed, the roof will offer a strong example of green infrastructure and promote the university community and the public’s understanding of the ecosystem services offered by implementing green infrastructure projects.
