Chatham University’s Eden Hall Campus K-12 Programs provide opportunities for students, teachers, administrators and families to connect with sustainability content and experiential pedagogies. They partner with schools to encourage the use of sustainability content as an integrating context between the disciplines and as a catalyst for student-driven community transformation. When schools inspire students to take on real projects in their communities, Chatham helps those schools and students to celebrate and share with their peers throughout the region. They offer field trips to campus, scholarships to support these field trips, student project conferences, educator events, project-based learning mentors, fellowships, and a Sustainability Leadership Academy summer program for high school students. Eden Hall’s K-12 Programs are part of Chatham’s Education Department.
Located in Richland, PA and home to the Falk School of Sustainability, Chatham University’s Eden Hall Campus is far more than a 388-acre plot of land. It’s the embodiment of a commitment Chatham makes every day to support sustainability and environmental education. At Eden Hall, the campus doesn’t just house classrooms, it is a classroom. It’s an international showcase of possibilities and a laboratory where faculty and students collaborate to develop the next generation tools and processes that will provide social, economic, and environmental benefits to our communities and to our world. Eden Hall features green buildings, renewable energy technologies, agriculture, aquaculture, onsite wastewater treatment facility acres of woodlands, and more.
