Justin Courtney Talks About Geothermal
Did you know that the geothermal technology installed this summer as part of the Affinity Village construction and Founders complex renovation is expected to reduce energy use in those areas by 30 to 40 percent and reduce water consumption in Affinity Village by 30 percent?
The project is expected to receive LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) silver certification.
The information was part of a table top presentation made by Justin Courtney, director of residence life and interim director of career services, at the Great Lakes Association of College and University Housing Officers (GLACUHO) in Ft. Wayne, Ind., Nov. 21-24. The presentation featured a video and table display of geothermal technology with Phase II housing at ONU.
Courtney was also elected to the Board of Directors for GLACUHO for a two-year term. He will serve as chair of the Campus Safety and Crisis Management Committee.
The Campus Safety and Crisis Management Committee's mission is to provide opportunities for the education and professional development of housing officers in the areas of campus safety and crisis management.
Those areas include everything from fire to technologies (such as Facebook), campus violence and career development.
GLACUHO is the premiere regional housing organization for Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. GLACUHO is part of the larger Association of College and University Housing Officers - International (ACUHO-I), which has been in existence since 1949.
