Johnson County Community College

We want to hear your feedback and ideas, both big and small! Email with your questions, comments or project ideas. We’ll review your request and get back to you as soon as possible.

If you have an idea for a project on campus that is suitable for funding by the Student Sustainability Committee (SSC) your suggestion(s) will be given to them for consideration and you may be invited to meet with them to discuss your project! If you are requesting consideration by the SSC, the more detail about and rationale for your project (How did you come up with the idea? Why is it needed? Etc.), the better the chances of them deciding to pursue it. We will happily accept class work that deals with new campus sustainability projects or solutions.

Any student project ideas chosen for pursuit, must meet the outlined funding guidelines. You may also want to review our sustainability projects pages to see if we are already in the process of working on something similar.
