environmental sustainability is a core value of the Foothill-De Anza
Community College District. The Board of Trustees, faculty, staff,
administrators, and students are proud of our achievements in energy
efficiency, natural resource preservation, and environmental
stewardship, but know that we have so much more to accomplish in the
months and years ahead. The challenge to "green" our colleges and
ourselves is more urgent than ever!
