This fantastic new space was made available through a generous gift from Robert (Bob) E. Wagner (75') and his wife Wendy. Because of their thoughtful gift, students at SUNY Potsdam and members of the community will have an opportunity to learn about the importance of social, economical and ecological sustainability.
