Description MVC has always been involved in sustainable practices. However, the formal structure for sustainability was developed as an initiative by our president, Felix A. Zamora. The president established a Sustainability Council, which consists of the president and the three vice presidents. This council sets strategic initiatives for the college. The strategic initiatives are operationalized and implemented via a coordinated effort of our campus Green Team and our Sustainability Coordinator. The Green Team worked with the campus community to develop institutional objectives that support the triple bottom line of people, planet and profit. The objectives are designed to support students, staff and community. Objectives will be implemented, tracked and reported on an annual basis.
