The Institute for Leadership in Sustainable Technology (ILST) is a researched-based summer institute focusing on a variety of sustainable technologies, open to 12 students across the three colleges of the University.
Students receive hands-on, team based experiences, conducting sustainability consulting projects that focus on economic, social, and environmental issues in residential and commercial settings. The program is open to rising sophomores, juniors and seniors.
ILST was created in 2015 by Dr. Peter Jansson and Dr. Neil Boyd.
ILST taught me a lot and gave me a sense of what I have interest in and how my life path can make a difference in the world.What Students Are Saying
Four Photovoltaic Feasibility Assessments - Four student groups comprised of one student from engineering, management, and arts and sciences conducted detailed feasibility studies of commercial or residential field sites for solar installation. They produced reports that were delivered to their clients which contained solar window data, solar array design, financial information (cost, internal rate of return, payback period, funding sources, tax credits).
ILST Shed Design Project - Six students created an architectural design for a new ILST shed on Energy Hill that would meet the standards of the Living Building Challenge, produced enough space to house anaerobic digestion equipment, storage, and designed to hold a solar array that would be mounted in a southern direction. Their findings were delivered to Yoder Barns in order to produce a quote for the construction of the shed.Learn More about other recent ILST projects and activities
