On Thursday July 26th from 2-3:30pm EDT the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment will host a webinar alongside the US Green Building Council that addresses the issue of "Using LEED as a Framework for Existing Facilities on Campus". As many schools have integrated green building into planning and construction, one of the remaining questions is how to incorporate green building into existing facilities.
