Does the institution have a sustainability committee?:

The charter or mission statement of the committee or a brief description of the committee's purview and activities :

The sustainability committee was initially formed to review and gather information for the STARS report. Members of this committee were charged with reporting baseline information regarding the College’s current sustainability efforts in regard to the STARS criteria and to provide recommendations to the CIP Team (6-08) about which STARS criteria to pursue.
The committee spent a great deal of time researching the initial STARS criteria, and determining what “sustainability initiatives” the college already had in place. Initially, each committee member was assigned an area to research. Visits were conducted throughout the college to determine what STARS criteria Richland Community College had completed, which were in the planning stages, and which were not being considered currently. Periodic meetings were held to discuss the research and how to proceed. It was determined that the College is doing a great deal to enhance the sustainability of the College. The committee documented these findings. The committee now meets on an "as needed" basis.
