Under a tent shielding the audience from rain and wind on Wednesday, May 22 at the Sylvania Campus courtyard, the PCC Sustainability Council celebrated the signing of the 2013 Climate Action Plan, a second edition of the original plan signed by College President Preston Pulliams in 2009.  Many of the goals are to get the college below greenhouse gas levels measured during a 2006 inventory. So by 2030, PCC is targeting to be 40 percent below 2006 greenhouse gas levels and 80 percent below the levels by 2050. On hand for the ceremony was Randy McEwen (college vice president), Linda Gerber (Sylvania president) and Erin Stanforth, to name a few. McEwen ultimately signed the revised plan to a big applause by the gathered crowd. For the complete plan, visit the PCC Sustainability Webpage or contact Erin Stanforth (sustainability manager) at (971) 722-7635.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
