Smith alumna and trustee gives $1 million to Center for the Environment

Smith trustee Marcia MacHarg ’70 of Germany recently made a $1 million gift in support of Smith’s Center for the Environment, Ecological Design, and Sustainability (CEEDS). The center’s purpose is “to graduate women who excel at integrating knowledge across disciplines in support of environmental decisions and action.” The center, which is located on the garden level of Wright Hall, is a great place to learn about green initiatives taking place on campus. It also houses the Office of Sustainability, faculty from the Engineering and Landscape Studies departments, staff knowledgeable about the Environmental Science and Policy Program, and the people behind both the Ada and Archibald MacLeish Field Station and Smith’s environmental monitoring initiatives.
The center’s foyer will soon feature a plaque acknowledging Marcia’s transformational gift to CEEDS.
