In April, the National Community College Sustainability Webinar series will partner with the SEED Center for two webinars hosted on the SEED platform. Registration for these is required at the links below.

Building Sustainability Into The College Strategic Plan

Wednesday, April 2, 2014
1-2 p.m. Central Time


As sustainability activities are often dispersed across organizational units and campuses, embedding these principles into the college's guiding documents can mean the difference between an isolated classroom recycling project and full integration across the institution. Learn how colleges have, through their institutional strategic planning processes, incorporated sustainability components into strategic planning documents, facility master plans, and even employees' work procedures. Once sustainability is part of the institution's DNA the efforts endure as presidents and trustees come and go.

Presenters:
Andrew Kim, Director of Environmental Stewardship, Austin Community College (TX)
Randy Grissom, President, Santa Fe Community College (NM)
Xubi Wilson, Renewable Energy Programs Coordinator, Santa Fe Community College (NM)
Todd Cohen, Program Director, The SEED Center (Moderator)

Facing outdated infrastructure, climate shifts, increasing consumer demand, and an aging workforce, the water industry is gearing up for a major transformation.

This webinar will familiarize participants with the water management field, including the identification of occupations that will require community college education. The event will also serve as a starting point for a series of future community college conversations around water and education and training.

Christine Radke, Manager of the Water Science & Engineering division, Water Environment Federation
