Johnson County Community College

Mission

The Student Sustainability Committee (SSC) of Johnson County Community College (JCCC) is charged with allocating the Sustainability Initiatives Fund for the advancement toward a more sustainable campus.

The Sustainability Initiatives Fund is a made possible by a $1 per credit hour contribution by JCCC students. The fund was born in fall 2009 when a team of JCCC honors students lobbied the president and the board of trustees and petitioned their peers to approve the fee. Over 1,500 signatures were collected from the student body.

Check out the campus projects that have been made possible by the Student Sustainability Committee and the Sustainability Initiatives Fund.
