Take the Pledge
The Joliet Junior College Student Sustainability pledge encourages students to take small but mindful action in their daily lives that will support the sustainability efforts on campus and collectively reduce the ecological footprint of our community.
Join the Student Sustainability Union
The Student Sustainability Union (SSU) needs your help! Visit the Student Activities page to see how you can join.
The SSU advocates for sustainability to be a top priority at the college by employing the use of sound environmental practices, reducing our negative impact on the local environment, raising awareness on campus and in the community, and promoting social responsibility and global awareness.
The Student Sustainability Union began in spring semester of 2011 as a response not only to the national attention the topic of sustainability had received, but also to address the growing focus on student involvement and global awareness. The students enjoy the responsibility as active members of the JJCSI Committee as they continually keep education and awareness in mind.
