Full Text: Rick Fedrizzi, president, CEO, and founding chair of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), a nonprofit dedicated to improved cost- and energy-efficiency in buildings, delivered the inaugural Glenn H. Beyer Memorial Lecture on campus in April. Speaking on "People, Planet, and Performance," Fedrizzi discussed the USGBC's oversight of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building rating system and other efforts to plan more eco-friendly communities and structures. During his visit, Fedrizzi also met with student leaders from Cornell University Sustainable Design, toured the new Human Ecology Building, which is striving for a LEED Gold rating, and visited DEA assistant professor Ying Hua's undergraduate design class.
