The Sustainability Center at JALC was established to help promote sustainable practices in campus departments, to educate students about sustainability issues, to encourage faculty to integrate sustainability into curriculum, and serve as a source of “green” information for the community at large. The JALC Sustainability Center is located in the Workforce Development and Construction Management Building, H-205.

The College is a member of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) and the SEED Center (Sustainability Education & Economic Development), an initiative of the American Association of Community Colleges and eco America.
