CIV 495: Intro to Sustainability

Presentation Description/Abstract

Sustainability is the practice of meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. On Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach campus, sustainability is important in order to preserve the campus and allow equal opportunity of education for future generations while still being profitable. This work will be focused on the rapid growth with regards to the student population on campus and its association with limited resources on campus. The aim of this work is to achieve a sustainability model for Embry-Riddle’s growth that coincides with the availability of housing. Using the Fractal Triangle Model, we will analyze the current growth in the student body compared to the availability of resources on campus and propose modifications to improve the overall economic, environmental, and social sustainability. In order to assess this issue, student admission growth rates will be examined and compared to the current available space for both living spaces and parking lot spaces. A stakeholder analysis will be conducted to identify the main stakeholders associated in this plan in order to have a sustainable campus. Some of the benefits associated with this project involve raising awareness of the University’s current sustainability.
