As student populations and college programs continue to grow, colleges need to expand their campuses. When campuses expand, they should consider how to best use the available land, by thinking politically, historically, financially, topographically, and, more recently, environmentally. The last of these methods of thinking is what I will be focusing on in this presentation. I will examine how proposed expansions at SUNY Brockport may affect natural habitats around campus, and how the college could attempt to minimize damage to these habitats. I also will explain how other campuses have dealt with land use planning issues, and how new buildings may be designed in an environmentally friendly and cost-efficient manner.
