Individuals, Groups or Classes

Whether you're planning a visit from across town or just across campus, keep sustainability in mind! We can come to your classroom or community group, or meet you at any of several sustainability-related campus projects to make a presentation and have a conversation with your group, a class, or even you and your colleagues if you’d like to enjoy a team-building campus excursion.

Guest Talk on Sustainability

Our general introduction to sustainability at JCCC gives students a basic understanding of sustainable principles and how they’re applied on campus. This talk is highly customizable for the class time and location.

Curriculum-specific Talk

This is a chance for us to work together and explore your specific needs. We’ve discussed environmental justice and the Black experience with history and sociology students, corporate social responsibility and greenwashing with business students, and many other topics as requested by faculty. Don’t forget—we also offer funding support for sustainability-related curriculum development!

JCCC Green Building Tour

Learn more about JCCC’s commitment to green building standards in this talk that we usually hold in the lobby of Galileo’s Pavilion. The conversation introduces green building practices using our own LEED Platinum-rated building as a case study. We can also add newer construction on campus, including the Wylie Hospitality and Culinary Academy, the Fine Arts & Design Studios or the Hugh J. Libby Career and Technical Education Center.

Waste Audits 101

Engage in a conversation with staff and student interns about the kinds of things we throw away in this critical thinking exercise. Through an evaluation of waste in your own classroom or previous campus waste audits, we will talk through the types of waste we see on campus, the recycling process and its commodification, how recycling sales support student learning at JCCC, and what steps students can take to reduce and properly dispose of their own waste.
