The SRJC Associated Students (AS) leadership has demonstrated a strong commitment to sustainability through its goals, programs and activities. The Student Senate works collaboratively on sustainability efforts at Santa Rosa Junior College, sets the student agenda for sustainability and advocates for the implementation of best practices throughout SRJC.
This involvement includes bridging with the Students for Sustainable Communities (SSC), an umbrella organization that coordinates the sustainability activities of college clubs. SSC has been recognized for its efforts as the recipient of the “Best Practice Award” at the 2010 Higher Education Sustainability Conference. Its members have also received other awards for their sustainability practices and efforts.
SRJC students are involved in organizing and participating in “green” trainings, lecture series, film series, and conduct a wide variety of sustainability activities across the college and in the community.
In addition, when funds allow, the A.S. employs a Student Sustainability Coordinator and other student employees to assist in organizing and implementing college sustainability projects.
Contact SSC at SRJCsustainability@gmail.com and find them on Facebook (you must be logged into a personal Facebook account to access). SSC is now active on both the Santa Rosa and Petaluma Campuses. They want to hear your ideas and hope that you will become active in SRJC’s sustainability efforts. Students may also contact the Student Affairs Office at (707) 527-4424 for more information.
Without the enthusiasm, dedication, and imagination of our students, SRJC would not be the green college it is today. Student efforts have led the college toward sustainable policy and practices and will continue to fuel our efforts and interest in conservation and sustainability.
The following are some of the ways that students have excited us with their strong commitment to going green and a supporting a Sustainable SRJC, including accomplishments, current projects, future initiatives and a list of core values.
