Sustainability Group Mission 

We foster responsibility and pride in our campus as a living organism.

We aid in implementing sustainability policies and practices, aware that we all are stewards of the earth and have an interdependence with the environment as individuals and as a community.

Sustainability Group First Year Goals

We will draft a plan to raise sustainability consciousness among all the LAVC constituencies.

We will draft a plan to establish awareness across the 5 areas of sustainability: waste, chemicals, water, food, and resources.

Begin a resource pool on which the campus community may draw.

Draft steps towards providing vision, leadership, planning and coordination for campus-wide groups, such as: student involvement, Transportation, green building, food and recycling, climate change and energy, and administration.

Initiate an inventory of the existing biodiversity on campus.

Initiate campus activities (eg. tours, art exhibits, workshops, etc.) to foster interest in sustainability.

Make recommendations for the future vision of the campus as a living organism.

Draft a comprehensive five-year plan addressing the sustainable needs of our campus and community
