Moving to a greener tomorrow

In the Spring of 2009 the Seattle Community Colleges convened the Chancellor’s Sustainability Initiative Leadership Team from the three colleges to oversee and plan efforts to enhance sustainability in operations and instruction. The Leadership Team sits on the District Sustainability Committee and with the help of the District Sustainability Coordinator helps guide and oversee sustainability planning and implementation at the Seattle Community Colleges.

Recently, the Sustainability Committee and the Sustainability Coordinator have worked to perform STARS sustainability assessments of each of the Seattle Community Colleges. Information from the STARS assessments results will be used to create a District Sustainability Plan that will serve as a guiding document to ensure the Seattle Colleges are a regional leader in college sustainability.
