Jacksonville University

Sustainability is becoming an imperative for business, government, and college campuses.

That’s especially true at Jacksonville University, where everything from a sustainable dorm, to rooftop gardens, to even a degree in sustainability is now in the mix. 

According to JU Sustainability Coordinator Marcel Dulay, students are working with Jacksonville’s Clara White Mission to train homeless veterans in gardening as part of their rooftop garden initiative. The program was made possible through a grant from Siemens.
