The new School of Environmental Sustainability ( SES ) is growing quickly and currently serves 380 undergraduate and 70 graduate students. It is housed within a state-of-the-art geo-thermally heated/cooled building complex containing a 3,100 sq ft greenhouse, aquaponics facilities, a biodiesel production facility, teaching & research labs, environmental analytical lab, ecotoxicology lab, a GIS Lab, and a ‘green’ dormitory. The university prioritizes sustainability with 13 energy efficient LEED certified buildings, permeable pavement, green roof installations, and student-run urban gardens supplying the LUC Farmer’s Market. The Loyola University Retreat & Ecology Campus ( LUREC ) has a wetland restoration project in a 20-acre wetland, a 5-acre organic farm, and is a venue for three-week summer field courses and for faculty and student research in sustainable agriculture, ecology, and wetland restoration. The SES faculty is organized within 5 affinity groups that reflect its strengths in research, teaching, and community engagement: Biodiversity, Environment and Society, Environmental Health and Toxicology, Sustainable Food Systems, and Climate and Energy.
