SBVC's 12,000+ students, staff, and faculty are committed to doing our part to promote
sustainable practices and policies.
Beyond recycling and weekend energy conservation initiatives, staff and faculty at
SBVC are adopting more sustainability practices each and every year.
San Bernardino Valley College (as part of the San Bernardino Community College District)
is a member of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) which promotes sustainable practices in operations and activities within
higher education. Green-friendly construction practices are now part of every building
and modernization project--including the opening of SBVC's new Physical Sciences building that will be the first LEED-certified building once formally reviewed.
SBVC campus staff and faculty have contributed to the SBCCD Sustainability Plan and the SBVC Alternative Energy Concept Plan while the forthcoming Central Plant project will reduce SBVC's energy consumption by 20%.
