Aquinas is First College in West Michigan to Sponsor Entire Habitat for Humanity Home
Partnership with Habitat in Line with Aquinas’ Mission and Center for Sustainability
Aquinas College has added another first to its list of achievements. This inclusive educational community made academic history in 2003 when it became the first institution in the United States to offer undergraduate degrees in sustainable business.
The curriculum is affiliated with the Center for Sustainability (C4S) at Aquinas College, which is dedicated to the development and advancement of organizations and communities who promote economic viability, natural world kinship, and social responsibility.
Watch the progression of the house!
In August of 2009, Aquinas College further advanced its commitment to sustainability and social responsibility by partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Kent County to underwrite and complete a LEED for Homes® Certified “Total Gut Rehab” home in southwest Grand Rapids.
