The Elizabeth River Project recently awarded ODU Commitment Level River Star status for the new Engineering and Computational Sciences Building, the first LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) higher education facility in Virginia.

The Elizabeth River Project is an independent, nonprofit organization that works to restore the Elizabeth River through government, business and community partnerships. Its River Star Program motivates facilities in the Elizabeth River watershed to pursue voluntary pollution prevention and wildlife habitat goals above compliance. It provides assistance and recognition as they advance through three levels of the program: Commitment, Achievement and Model.
