RCCD will present their holistic and innovative approach to sustainability and climate change across 3 unique campuses — each at different levels of understanding and implementation abilities — and how they created the Sustainability and Climate Action Plan, data-driven components within it, and lessons learned along the way to Board Approval.

The Sustainability and Climate Action Plan is a state-of-art implementable roadmap toward RCCD’s sustainability goals and establishes the district as a leader in Environmental Stewardship. It is aligned with the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education Stars, a reporting framework connecting sustainability in the built environment and academics. The Sustainability and Climate Action Plan includes an Integrated Energy Master Plan and a Total Cost of Ownership Model and dashboards developed to review real-time progress.

Learning objectives include:

  • Create a unique framework and rating system to develop actionable items around sustainability;
  • Describe the AASHE Stars reporting framework and how it is used in the RCCD plan;
  • Identify the data needed to create a final TCO Model that can inform decision making across the institutional committees;
  • Illustrate the Lessons Learned and takeaways from; the shared governance process; data-collection, analysis and benchmarking phase; and the TCO dashboard transfer to the district.

Leigh Anne’s session will be on the third day of the conference, Wednesday, November 8 from 9:15 AM – 10:30 AM.
