Goshen College is announcing a new, unique opportunity for undergraduate students to earn a semester of college credit in a fairly unconventional way. Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College will offer (beginning in the fall of 2011) the Sustainability Semester in Residence for students to live and learn in Indiana’s first platinum-rated LEED® facility located on a 1,189-acre nature preserve. A cohort of six to 15 students will engage complex problems related to the regional watershed.
Their educations began in the same place and their careers ended in the same place. Coincidentally, Goshen College Professor of Nursing Evelyn Driver and Professor of Biology Stan Grove went to the same elementary school, graduated the same year from Eastern Mennonite High School in Harrisonburg, Va., and then both retired this year from 67 years combined of teaching at Goshen College. In the intervening years, their careers have been focused in different directions: one on the world of nursing and the other on the biological world.
