Millennium Fellowship Project: Lions Electrical Discourse (LED)
This project will offer green consulting solutions to Loyola Marymount University administration to make campus operations more sustainable, while also educating the student body. The two main objectives are to promote sustainable lighting and power sourcing, which are both sustainable for the environment and cost efficient for the university.
The team brings together multiple disciplines from LMU's Colleges of Business, Science & Engineering, Liberal Arts, and Film & Television to collaborate on their goals from scientific, fiscal, and social perspectives. They aspire to educate both their administrators and the student body on the efficiency of green alternatives in a multidisciplinary way. By implementing and advocating for sustainable energy solutions, they hope to position the university for a greener future.
