Sustainability

Welcome to the Associated Students of Moorpark College (ASMC) Sustainability Page! ASMC has been collaborating with the Moorpark College Facilities, Maintenance and Operations department over the past several years to make our campus as environmentally friendly as possible.


Associated Students Sustainability Committee

The Associated Students Sustainability Committee (ASSC) consists of ASMC Board Directors and members of the general student body who share a collective desire to enhance the environmental sustainability of the MC campus while reducing energy, water, and trash waste. Members of the ASSC serve on an annual basis, following the VCCCD academic calendar, and the committee is chaired by the ASMC Director of Student Services & Sustainability.


Past Sustainability Projects

Moorpark College and ASMC have implemented different sustainability projects over the years. Sample projects include:Moorpark College campus with blue skies and green mountains in the background.

  • Hydration stations: A partnership between ASMC and the administration brought about half a dozen hydration stations across the MC campus, encouraging the use of refillable water bottles. Read more about the hydration stations here.
     
  • Free reusable water bottles: Previously, the 2015-2016 ASMC Board approved the purchase of 500 reusable water bottles to distribute to the student body to encourage the use of the aforementioned hydration stations. Read about the reusable water bottles here.
     
  • Incorporation of native and drought-tolerant plants: the ASSC is working with the Campus Environment Committee to identify areas on campus where more native plants and drought-tolerant plants can be incorporated in place of water-intensive grass.
