healy210Tim initiated the Latimer Energy Laboratory after the 2007 Solar Decathlon in recognition of the need for a campus-wide focus on sustainable energy. Today the lab serves constituents ranging from middle school students to graduate engineering students. Its success led to the establishment of a $1.3 million endowment grant to subsidize its continuing work.

He has been a key figure in supporting innovative, thoughtful and student-centered teaching on our campus for decades.
