Sustainability at Southwestern

Video - climate change

Southwestern Oregon Community College is dedicated to creating and supporting sustainability through action and education.

We believe in the three common attributes of sustainability:  Economic, environmental, and social.  We also recognize the importance of sustaining our traditions, values, people and knowledge.

We can continue to take steps toward a more sustainable educational district by:

  • Reducing use
  • Improving efficiencies
  • Reusing resources
  • Enhancing quality
  • Valuing people
  • Seeking partnerships
  • Recognizing our traditions
  • Documenting our knowledge

We are committed to teaching ourselves, our students, and our communities new and improved ways to sustain our college and surrounding communities—by leading by example.
