Sustainability at CLC

CLC is recognized as a local and national leader in sustainability. By being more sustainable at CLC, we can inspire students, the Lake County community and other colleges to improve their impact on the environment and create opportunities in the workforce.

Our Sustainability Plan

The College of Lake County established goals and performance metrics to help it along its path to sustainability in its Sustainability Plan (PDF)  and tracks its progress in the Annual Sustainability Plan Performance Report (PDF).  The Sustainability Council, as part of CLC’s shared governance system, is responsible for supporting the development of the Sustainability Plan and guiding sustainability initiatives across the college.
