The College President shall appoint a Sustainability Committee composed of representatives of stakeholder groups from the College community. To achieve Foothill’s goals, the Sustainability Committee will develop priorities and implement decisions regarding sustainability practices.
Sustainability Committee Structure
The Sustainability Committee’s primary responsibility is to develop a Sustainability Management Plan (SMP) which will outline goals, implement programs, monitor and evaluate results, and provide an annual report to the President. The SMP will be an integral part of the Foothill Educational Master Plan. As part of the reporting process, the committee will examine past practices and revise and redefine parameters as necessary to produce meaningful data.
Implementation of action plans will focus on the following six areas:
The Committee and sub-committees may appoint additional members. The Committee shall meet as a whole at approximately once per month. All terms are two years, with the exception of the student member(s), whose term shall be one year; there are no term limits. Sub-committees shall be appointed, and meet, as necessary.
The President shall review the scope and structure of the Sustainability Committee every 3 years.
With this commitment, a viable “road map” and annual reporting to the President, Foothill College is in position to move sustainably through the 21st century.
