For its weekly "Going Green" segment, Rockford's NBC affiliate (WREX13) yesterday featured the college's Center for the Sciences and announced its latest award. The building recently received the Environmental Excellence Award from the Associated General Contractors of Wisconsin.
Brock Spencer, Kohnstamm Professor of Chemistry, gave the news crew a tour and observed "there's a living by example, a teaching by example that comes from actually being in a building of this type."

A longer story on the building and its green attributes appeared on WISC-TV in October of last year and is also available online.
