Green Building Class Builds Sustainable Structure by Hand

Twenty-three students spent the month of May building a new, sustainable structure at the University of Michigan Biological Station.

The Program in the Environment (PitE) offers both a broad liberal arts education in environmental topics and the opportunity for students to pursue various lines of individual interest in considerable depth.  Broadly speaking, PitE’s curriculum focuses on the complex interactions of human beings and their environment.  To understand these interactions and learn how to create more rational and equitable forms of human habitation on this planet, PitE students develop a multidisciplinary perspective integrating the methods and approaches of the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities.



We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Program in the Environment needs you—because the world needs Victors.
