Shasta College President Joe Wyse just renewed our commitment to the ACUPCC Implementation Guide. As stated in the Executive Summary of the Implementation Guide "the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment1 (ACUPCC) has helped transition the sustainability movement in higher education from a series of isolated projects to a cohesive network of shared best practices, successful solutions, and deep investment in sustainability education for all students. Since 2006, the ACUPCC has grown from 12 founding presidents2 to a network of 665 institutions, representing all 50 States and every institutional demographic that U.S. higher education has to offer. Signatory institutions have completed thousands of projects to reduce energy use, curb greenhouse gas emissions, engage students in deep systems thinking, and save money—demonstrating powerful and necessary leadership for the rest of society."
