Business in brief


The Princeton Review has named the University of Richmond a “green” college for 2014. The college guidebook publisher annually recognizes colleges for environmental initiatives in construction, energy conservation and recycling. In recent years, all of the university's new construction has been LEED certified, and major renovations have focused on sustainable design strategies. The university also has a silver STARS rating from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education and is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council with an active student chapter. To encourage students to conserve energy, monitoring systems in 14 residence halls allow residents to view their electricity usage in real time. To reduce single-occupancy vehicle travel, Richmond operates bus service to popular destinations around Richmond, provides free GRTC bus passes to students and employees and participates in Zipcar, an on-demand, car-sharing program located on campus. > Read more.

“The iPad is very developmentally accessible,” Gibson said, commenting on the lack of training required to use the device. “You just have to know how to push a button and move your finger.” > Read more.
