Washington College officials broke ground on Friday, September 8th on an academic hall which will be part of a waterfront campus. Named for Truman T. Semans and Jack S. “Jay” Griswold, two people whose lives’ work on environmental issues have had an extraordinary impact regionally and nationally, the new building will provide academic and lab spaces for the College’s growing environmental programs and its Center for Environment & Society. It will also be a regional hub for hands-on research on the Chesapeake, and a magnet for thought leadership centered on the environment and the challenges facing the region, the country, and the world. The Semans-Griswold Environmental Hall will serve as a model of responsible design, aspiring to LEED platinum certification. It will demonstrate the College’s commitment to stewarding the finite resources of the Eastern Shore, leading the way for environmental study, preservation, and advocacy. Open to the public, the building will include a network of sensors on the Chester River and Chesapeake Bay that staff and students will monitor and which will display the estuary’s natural systems as part of educating visitors.
