SLU receives grant for Sustainability Semester classroom


CANTON — St. Lawrence University’s Sustainability Semester program has received financial assistance from a familiar source.

The J.M. McDonald Foundation recently awarded a grant of $32,000 to renovate a multiuse classroom at the former site of the Cornell Cooperative Extension offices.

Work is under way to renovate a building for use as a residence by the program’s 12 students, while the grant will assist in funding creation of classroom space in a neighboring building. In addition to classes, the space will be used by the program’s community partners to conduct workshops for students and the community. Program organizers also plan to host visits from local public schools for tours and hands-on activities with the goal of creating an educational model for the community and other institutions.

The McDonald Foundation, based in Evergreen, Colo., has awarded the university several grants in the past for projects ranging from the Johnson Hall of Science construction to funding for athletics facilities.
