A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome:

MVCC hosted and co-facilitated a 2-day sustainability planning workshop for 12 member institutions of the South Metropolitan Higher Education Consortium. The Consortium met an accomplished goal of creating skeleton sustainability strategic plans, building a community of peers and sharing collective knowledge based around sustainability. Over 100 participants from multiple departments of the member institutions came together for 2 days to primarily focus on and strategize sustainability initiatives. Speakers from the State and from a leading community college in Oregon presented to board of trustee members, presidents, executive leaders, staff, faculty and student representatives from each of the 12 member institutions, engaging them all in a call to action for sustainability. Teams from each institution worked using templates, which were based on the STARS model and the Illinois Campus Sustainability Compact, created by the co-facilitators to develop action plans which would support the success of and resulted in asking the college and university presidents to collectively sign and adopt the Illinois Campus Sustainability Compact as a priority for their institutions. All member institutions pledged at Silver Level or higher.
