SMCCCD Sustainability

Creating synergistic benefits to social, ecologic and economic systems is very challenging. Here at San Mateo County Community College District (SMCCCD), we are working to address this challenge by focusing on our mission of accessible, high-quality education for all. To achieve sustainability, both locally and globally, we will need everyone’s help. So whether you are passionate about social justice, civic duty, entrepreneurship or saving the planet, there are plenty of opportunities to simultaneously hone your skills and expand your positive impact. Join us as we strive for sustainability!
