Planning, Administration, and Engagement

Coordination and Planning

  • Sustainability Commitee
    • Richland has a sustainability committee consisting of the following members: Keith Ashby, Greg Florian, Sandy Harmison, David Holtfreter, Kathryn Mast, Andy Perry, Carol Stokes, Nancy Sullivan, and Steve Vandiver.
    • The sustainability committee was initially formed to review and gather information for the STARS report. Members of this committee were charged with reporting baseline information regarding the College’s current sustainability efforts in regard to the STARS criteria and to provide recommendations to the CIP Team (6-08) about which STARS criteria to pursue. The committee spent a great deal of time researching the initial STARS criteria, and determining what “sustainability initiatives” the college already had in place. Initially, each committee member was assigned an area to research. Visits were conducted throughout the college to determine what STARS criteria Richland Community College had completed, which were in the planning stages, and which were not being considered currently. Periodic meetings were held to discuss the research and how to proceed. It was determined that the College is doing a great deal to enhance the sustainability of the College. The committee documented these findings. The committee now meets on an "as needed" basis.
  • Strategic Plan
    • Richland's Strategic Plan, updated in 2011, encompasses three main goals. One of those goals is to Cultivate a Sustainable Instituitional Environment. There are strategies within this goal dealing with environmental sustainability, social sustainability, and financial sustainabiltiy.
  • Sustainability Plan 
    • The 2011-2014 Strategic Plan approved in May 2011 was crafted with input from internal and stakeholders. Surveys were distributed and input was obtained from students, faculty and staff members as well as top-level administrators.
    • One of the three main goals identified in the strategic plan was to "Cultivate a Sustainable Institutional Environment." The College has identified five strategies to meet this goal which will be tracked over the next three years to assure that this goal is met.
