The Labovitz School of Business and Economics is the first new higher education building in the state of Minnesota to receive the Gold Award for a LEED certified “green building.” LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, a “green building” rating system established by the United States Green Building Council. The Labovitz School is totally designed to meet LEED certification--a rigorous process that evaluates the environmental sustainability of building design, construction and operation. The LEED checklist concerns five major areas: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality.

administrative NEWS

The College of Pharmacy, Duluth, is scheduling appointments for their Pharmaceutical Care Clinic, part of a class requirement for student pharmacists. They use their knowledge and help people use their medications appropriately. All of the activities are supervised by a licensed and experienced pharmacist. Student pharmacists will conduct a thorough review of medical history and medications and will develop a plan for ensuring medications are used appropriately. They will provide recommendations to resolve any medication related problems. Because patients are participating in student education, this service is free. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 726-6800. Clinics are scheduled for the afternoons of Oct. 13 and 15 and Nov. 3, 5, 17, and 19.
