Ullman, Ellen
Community College Journal, v79 n2 p14-18 Oct-Nov 2008
Across the country, mayors, business owners, government workers, and labor leaders are saying it's time to push for a greener world. Community colleges are advancing the jobs of the future at a much faster rate than anyone else. To truly embrace sustainability, it must be integrated into all facets of the college: mission and planning, curricula, research, purchasing, student life, operations, professional development, legislative activities, and community outreach and partnerships. This article discusses various efforts of advancing sustainability at the college level, including institutional leadership and planning, facilities, student life, curriculum, and community partnerships.
