A brief description of the signage that highlights sustainability features on campus:

Galileo's Pavilion, a LEED Platinum certified building, contains signage highlighting the sustainability features of the building.

Does the institution provide a sustainability walking map or tour?:
Yes

A brief description of the sustainability walking map or tour:

JCCC Students produced a campus map and brochure highlighting sustainable features of campus that community-based-research indicated may be unfamiliar to their peers. The brochure is updated annually and used to augment sustainability staff-led tours for credit classes, campus units' teambuilding exercises, and community members.


Does the institution produce a guide for green living and/or incorporating sustainability into the residential experience?:
Yes

A brief description of the guide for green living and/or incorporating sustainability into the residential experience:

As a commuter campus, JCCC can't incorporate sustainability into the residential experience. However, we do offer regular tabling events where we talk about and demonstrate green cleaning options, recycling opportunities and education, healthier cooking, and how-to guides for composting, reuse, and other useful skills, including topics particularly relevant to students with young family members on how to talk with children about climate change and pollution.
