Open Campus Forum on use of the Roux Center for the Environment
Tues, Dec 12, 3-4pm | in Main Lounge Moulton Union

As the new Roux Center for the Environment emerges at the corner of College Street and Harpswell Road and as we plan for its inaugural semester (Fall 2018), we invite you to join the conversation about what kinds of activities might happen in Roux.

As Clayton wrote in his announcement of the new Roux Center in February 2016, the vision for this new building is “to bring together faculty and students from across disciplines to encourage and facilitate creativity and collaboration about global problems of the environment.” The Roux Program Committee, comprised of representatives from across the campus community, has been involved throughout the planning and design process to ensure that this vision is embedded in all aspects of the building, even as some parts of the building are designed for specific offices and labs.

At this point, we want to continue the conversation about creativity and collaboration, about bringing together faculty and students across disciplines. Please come to this open campus forum during Reading Period to share your thoughts, listen to ideas, and consider the possibilities for transformative uses of the new Roux Center.
