The Facilities and Sustainability Team meets bi-monthly to develop a comprehensive sustainability plan and facilities improvements program, and consists of representatives from all college constituency groups, Students, Staff and Faculty. In April 2007, the college’s board of trustees and president made a bold statement by signing the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment. This agreement demonstrates HCC’s leadership within the college community and throughout society to minimize global warming emissions as well as provide the knowledge and education to achieve climate neutrality.


To provide leadership and coordination in the advancement of campus facilities, systems, and infrastructure that promote buildings that are environmentally and socially responsible, efficient and healthy places to work and learn. We strive to develop a comprehensive plan to achieve climate neutrality complimented by an inclusive capital improvements program. We endeavor to respond to the needs of our students, employees, and college community; to provide them with the knowledge, skills, and practices required to create a thriving, ethical and civil environment.
