Living Lab Trail

The College of Lake County serves as a living laboratory, demonstrating the triple bottom line of sustainability (placing equal value on the environment, economy and human equity), promoting health and wellness, honoring cultural diversity and encouraging global outreach. This living laboratory prepares students to reach their current and future goals and to pursue resilient careers in a changing world.

The Trail is an example of how CLC is a living laboratory, incorporating campus infrastructure and operations into learning opportunities that support education, career development and benefit the community.

The Living Lab Trail embodies these connections and we invite you to explore. The trail has no beginning or end. You can follow the informational signs throughout the campus outdoors or inside on your way to class.
