This study will determine if sustainably retrofitted schools have a positive impact on human performance — including student health and academic achievement, and employee health and work satisfaction — compared to conventional school buildings. Results will quantify human benefits of green retrofits, and inform policy and priorities for facility and operational improvements. The study will also result in the creation of related project-based labs for K–12 students.

This project involves graduate and undergraduate students across multiple disciplines and is funded by The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. More information is available here.
