About the Session:
Under the leadership of Dean Gregory Sterling, the Yale Divinity School set ambitious sustainability goals for their campus that align with their mission ”to foster the knowledge and love of God through superior intellectual achievement, the preparation of students for lives of transformative service, the promotion of broad inclusivity and diversity in communal life, and the advancement of sustainability of the earth…” and “to prepare students to be ‘apostles of the environment.’” This includes providing new sustainable, affordable housing for Divinity School students, to be called the Living Village.

In this session, Dean Sterling and design team leaders in architecture, landscape architecture, and sustainability will analyze how mission-driven, strategic campus initiatives can spur profound change for campus architecture. They will explore specific components of how the Living Village demonstrates Yale Divinity School’s commitment to cultivating synergies between regenerative building design, historic campus architecture, and the community.
