    1. Sustainability Matters: A Collaborative Discussion 10/28/12 Dr. Jay Antle, Johnson County Community College

    2. The History of Galileo’s Pavilion • Student Sustainability Committee • Administrative Support • Board of Trustees

    3. Galileo’s Pavilion/Studio 804

    4. LEED Platinum Expectations

    5. Construction

    6. Living Walls

    7. JCCC and Sustainability • Why? • Globalization and Competition • Preparing our Students for a New Century • Climate Change • Greening Skill Sets

    8. History: 2008 Signing of the ACUPCC

    9. Impact of ACUPCC • Signified Senior Leadership Support • Specific Initiatives: LEED, Recycling, Waste Minimization • Brought a “Top” to a Grassroots Effort • Led to Integration in JCCC’s Strategic Plan

    10. Mission Mission: • JCCC shall lead through example in integrating sustainability into its curriculum and daily operations, transforming the physical campus into a living, learning laboratory. Being an environmentally, socially, and economically responsible institution shall benefit the college in terms of enhanced educational opportunities for our students, cost savings, and recognition as a regional leader.

    11. Goals Educational Goals: • ›Integrate sustainability throughout the JCCC curriculum and student experience on campus • ›Increase student and community engagement in sustainability initiatives • ›Become a regional leader in providing green workforce training Operational Goals: • ›Become a zero waste to landfill campus by 2025 • ›Make JCCC a 100% renewable energy campus by 2050 with 15% achieved by 2020 • ›Become a net-negative energy consumer by aggressively pursuing energy efficiency • ›Develop a sustainable transportation plan that focuses on increasing the use of public transportation, carpooling, bicycling, and other lower-impact forms of transportation • ›Measure and monitor social, environmental, and economic sustainability metrics and performance indicators

    12. Challenge: Green Jobs? • 2009 ARRA Programs • Green Job Training Grants • No Federal Carbon Legislation • JCCC Programs- Energy Auditing, Solar Tech, Sustainable Agriculture • Sustainable Hospitality Internship Program • Continuing Education: Sustainable Business Leadership Certificate

    13. National Leadership: Webinars and Conferences • http://blogs.jccc.edu/sustainability/events/

    14. Campus as Learning Lab: Storm Water Project • ARRA/JCCC/Student Funding • 50,000 Native Plants • Student Water Quality Testing

    15. Sustainable Waste Management

    16. Composting • Federal funding for in-vessel composting facility that is solar powered. • Full cycle composting on campus

    17. Composting • http://blogs.jccc.edu/sustainability/projects-programs/composting/ • 43 of food tons since June 2011

    18. Composting • Other options for composting around the country. www.findacomposter.com • Benefits: Reduce landfill costs, much better option than creating methane in a landfill, discover inefficiencies in food production.

    19. Recycling and Waste Management • Since 1994, revenue to student scholarships • Summer 2011 - Single-Stream • Summer 2012 - Centralized Office Recycling and Trash (CORT) program

    20. Recycling and Waste Management • Added e-waste, metal, deconstruction materials, surplus furniture management. • Benefits over last 3 years • Increased revenue from recycling, $30k. $70k since 1994 • Reduced landfill costs annually. $10k saved. • Analyze current system for schedule changes, etc. over $5k saved • Best for the environment.

    21. E3 Sustainable Office Challenge • A “LEED” for Offices • http://blogs.jccc.edu/sustainability/projects-programs/e3-sustainable-offices/ • 20 offices in the challenge

    22. Transportation

    23. Total Vehicles Entering JCCC • 12,925 daily – Spring 2011 – 12th week • 14,026 daily – Fall 2011 – 3rd week • 2001: 11,250 daily • 24.7% increase from 2001-2011 (Fall) • This percentage increase is nearly identical to the enrollment increase (24.4%) over the same time period • JCCC Commuters travel more than 55 million miles each year • That’s more than 7 trips around the Equator every day

    24. The highest peak occurs Wednesday at noon with 84% of total parking capacity used

    25. The highest peak occurs Wednesday at 10 am with 97% of total parking capacity used

    26. Conclusions & Recommendations

    27. Timeline Projections • Spring 2015 – 100% full, mid-day, mid-semester • Assuming 2% increase in vehicles per year – maintaining current linear relationship with the annual enrollment increase • Fall 2012 – 100% full 10am – 12pm, 3rd week of semester

    28. Why building additional parking is an unsustainable solution • JCCC average surface parking lot size = 440 spaces • Surface parking lot per space cost = $4,000 • New 440 space surface lot = $1,760,000 ($880k/year + land use opportunity cost) • This buys less than 2 years of 2% enrollment increases with business as usual • Galileo Garage = 1,150 spaces • Parking garage per space cost = $15,000 • New garage = $17,250,000 ($3.45 million/year) • This buys less than 5 years of 2% enrollment increases with business as usual • 1,280 – Net parking space increase 2001-2011 • 2,776 - Vehicle increase 2001-2011

    29. Express Bus Routes • Provide convenient, free-to-the-student alternative to commuting by car • Alleviate (or eliminate) parking problem indefinitely • Solution vs. Band-Aid • Much lower cost to the College than constructing additional parking

    30. Parking Permits • Provide reliable funding source for transportation projects • Provide disincentive for single-occupant vehicle commuting

    31. Other • Carpooling • Reserved parking for carpools • Bicycling • Safe bicycling paths • Covered, secure bicycle storage • Examine “non-transportation” solutions • Scheduling changes • Satellite campus locations • Hybrid/online classes • Update the Traffic & Parking study regularly • Confirm results, measure progress, and identify additional opportunities

    32. JCCC Energy Brief Summary

    33. Due to per kWh rate escalation outpacing electricity usage reduction

    34. Estimated Savings JCCC has saved an estimated $445,747 from January 2010 – August 2012 • Estimated using 2009 usage as baseline year

    35. Curriculum: Sunflower Project • http://blogs.jccc.edu/sustainability/projects-programs/sunflower-project/

    36. Students • http://blogs.jccc.edu/sustainability/students/ • Sustainability Initiatives Fund • Sustainability Sculpture Contest

    37. What’s Next • Getting Serious about Mass Transit • Pushing for Additional Energy Efficiency Measures and Renewable Energy • Revisiting Board Policies/Procedures • Facilitating Conversations across Political Boundaries • Integrating Sustainability into Student Learning Outcomes and Assessment

    38. Questions for Discussion • What does sustainability mean at your institutions? • What challenges do you face? • Does sustainability stand alone or is it integrated? • Implications of policy decisions?
