Program details


Sustainability at JCCC:

The tour will provide an overview of how sustainability is being implemented at JCCC, including using campus as a living laboratory, incorporating sustainability education across the entirety of the curriculum, guiding students to make all careers more sustainable, and the imperative to focus on sustainability as a mindset beyond personal behaviors. The tour will also cover additional topics such as how composting is implemented at JCCC and the campus farm, food, food waste, and associated greenhouse gas impacts,  stormwater maintenance, native plants, and bioremediation.

Kristy Howell, Ed.D, Coordinator Sustainability Education and Engagement will conduct the tour.

So much of our work in sustainability, equity, and education gets disconnected from the people who lead it that Kristy Howell thinks of herself as a sustainability storyteller. Dr. Howell is the Education and Engagement Coordinator in the Center for Sustainability at JCCC, where she’s worked since 2014, focusing on developing student leadership for campus sustainability, supporting faculty curriculum development, maintaining and reporting institutional sustainability data, and advancing institutional diversity and equity work. While telling the story of sustainability doesn’t have to include a tour, Kristy has led hundreds of them since joining the team at JCCC, and she’d say her favorites happen when folks have lots of questions – and when there’s snow on the ground. Sharing the story of sustainability on campus through tours for students and visitors is among her favorite tasks!

Note: as the tour will involve walking across campus, please indicate whether you would like accommodations. The event will be conducted indoors in the event of inclement weather.
