Get Involved

Skyline College provides many opportunities to get involved in sustainability projects on campus. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to engage and take action on sustainability.

For important dates and location times, please visit the event calendar. 

Student Sustainability Summit

Calling all students!

Do you notice the solar compactors on our recycling and waste bins in the quad, but want to think of new ways to generate energy? Do you utilize the campus’ hydration stations, but want to come up with ways to help the campus conserve water?

If you have an idea for a campus sustainability project, join us at the Student Summit Sustainability Forum this fall. The Sustainability Forum gives you chance to share ideas with your fellow students and come up with transformative campus projects.

The best part? Grants will be awarded to three projects chosen by you, the students, at the Summit’s Voting Day in March. But first you have to submit a proposal highlighting your inspiring projects.

Sustainability Ambassador Network

The Sustainability Ambassador Network provides students, faculty, and staff and administration with a forum to work collaboratively on sustainability projects on campus. Previous projects have included the creation of the Sustainability Plan and the Climate Action Plan. The Sustainability Ambassador Network (SAN) is also integral in supporting student-led projects such as installation of hydration stations and carpool week (see Student Sustainability Summit for more information).

SAN meetings are typically held 2-3 times per semester, once a month. Check out the calendar for details on dates and times as well as location of meetings.
