LYNCHBURG—A capital projects grant from the Virginia Foundation for Independent Colleges (VFIC) will help Randolph College conserve natural resources and better monitor its water usage.
The $7,000 grant will allow the College to install water sub-metering equipment in two residence halls and will provide the software connection for data collection.
The implementation of the sub-meters will allow the college to track and monitor conservation efforts in specific buildings. The hope is to use the data collected to work with students to create future water conservation efforts.
Founded in 1952, the Virginia Foundation for Independent Colleges is a nonprofit fund-raising and programmatic consortium supporting the programs and students of 15 leading private colleges in the Commonwealth.
