Eden Hall Campus
Chatham's Eden Hall Campus is way more than a 388-acre plot of land. It's the embodiment of a commitment Chatham makes everyday to support sustainability and environmental education. In fact, it will be home to Chatham's Falk School of Sustainability and function as a living and learning laboratory, where the campus just doesn't house classrooms, but is the classroom. It's where a blend of knowledge, experience, and creativity is always working, persistently developing, and constantly improving. It's the first in the world of its kind. And it's where all efforts are focused on attaining the greatest social, economic, and environmental impact through greatly limiting our ecological impact.
Using the latest in environmentally responsible technology, design and innovation, Eden Hall will be self-sustaining in every way by emitting zero carbon emissions, managing all storm and waste water on-site, and producing more energy than it consumes. With the help of the lead architecture firm Mithun, and the vision of the 388-acre, 20-year master plan developed by BNIM and Andropogon, Eden Hall will one day serve more than 1,500 students with programs in the fields of sustainability, health sciences, business, and more.

Academic Programs at Eden Hall Campus
Eden Hall Campus is the canvas for the Falk School of Sustainability's academic programs. The Falk School's Bachelor of Sustainability, Master of Sustainability, Master of Arts in Food Studies, and dual-degree Master of Sustainability-Master of Business Administration programs utilize the campus's field labs, green houses, gardens, fields, orchard, and surrounding forest to put their education into practice to work toward a more sustainable and just future.
In addition to Falk School programs, students can also choose from Chatham's highly sought-after degree programs in areas aligned with the job opportunities and economy of Pittsburgh, including the fields of healthcare, nursing, business, communication, and the arts & sciences.
Many of the Eden Hall courses and programs are tailored to students with already demanding professional and personal lives and focus on providing students with knowledge immediately applicable to their fields. Students will also benefit from the flexibility of choosing fully online programs or programs that are available with a mixture of on-campus and online classes. Additional programs and classes will be added as well in Spring 2015. Download the program list [PDF] »
