Pratt Institute President Schutte Announces Projects for Earth Day

April 25, 2012

President of Pratt Institute Thomas Schutte

Clinton Hill’s Pratt Institute will be awarded grant money as part of a larger $4.6 million endowment to improve green infrastructure throughout New York City. The money is being distributed in honor of Earth Day, which is an annual event falling on April 22.

On the main campus at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn the money will be used to build a new green roof on top of the North Hall building. The roof will be planted with species native to the area, and a parking lot on campus will also be planted with much greenery.

Pratt President Thomas Schutte announced that student and faculty members will join together to design, construct and monitor the projects.
