Recycle bins2  
HERE cohort teams up early on to build sustainable
collection bins to go around the campus.

The HERE program is open to incoming freshmen of all majors. Its core approach integrates the disciplines, applying sustainable principles and concerns across both academic study and lifestyle.

"With a growing concern in industry for sustainability from both an environmental and an economic perspective, students will benefit from early exposure to sustainable engineering solutions." - Dr. Kathleen Toohey, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering

The cornerstone of the program is a living-learning community focused on sustainability. From that base, the program ensures that you'll


  • Enjoy a unique educational and residential environment focused on sustainability
  • Work with faculty from engineering, sciences, and humanities with expertise in sustainability studies
  • Design and implement real sustainable engineering projects on the Rose- Hulman campus, courtesy of a generous grant from Procter & Gamble

For more information, please contact Dr. Patricia Brackin, 812-877-8106
