Building on the Block: State of Sustainability

The Charge: In the coming decade, we will ensure that the college is recognized as a model of environmental stewardship and innovation by advancing both the study and the practice of sustainability.

What's Happening: This year, CC published its first State of Sustainability report, which benchmarks the campus's performance across broad sustainability metrics and provides a road map for future improvements and priorities. The full State of Sustainability report and additional resources are available at the CC Office of Sustainability website. One highlight: CC's integration of sustainability concepts into curriculum across disciplines. The renovation of the Spencer Center made it the most energy efficient building on campus, with LED sensor lighting, added insulation, new roof and windows, and a high-efficiency heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system drastically reducing the building's energy usage. Completed solar arrays on Worner Campus Center, El Pomar Sports Center, the Dean of Students' home, and Cornerstone Arts Center also contribute to CC's goal of becoming carbon-neutral by 2020.
