Lewis & Clark Community College has been a leader in sustainability programs over the years, and is launching a couple of new certificate programs to train students for emerging careers in the field.  One is a four week program to address stormwater technology, and another will offer training in the electrical field as Smart-Grid opportunities arise when the technology reaches further south.

A leader in community college green efforts, the college created its Sustainability Department in 2008.  Since then, Lewis and Clark has been successful in infusing education with sustainability efforts and promoting green living and working practices throughout the community.  For more information on these programs, call 468-2782.
