Committed to fulfilling the promise of the green economy, the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) launched the Sustainability Education and Economic Development (SEED) initiative (www.theseedcenter.org) in October 2010. The project advances sustainability and clean energy workforce development practices at community colleges by sharing innovative models and resources and building the capacity of college leaders, faculty, and staff to grow the green economy. Through initial funding from The Kresge Foundation and Surda, and support from ecoAmerica, AACC is helping colleges and others navigate an increasingly green world. To date, more than 360 community college presidents have pledged to support the goals of SEED. The SEED Center includes more than 300 curated green jobs resources, community college program and course descriptions, in-depth success stories, instructional guidance for colleges on developing and advancing green focused programs on campus, and a Wiki to incorporate curricular materials submitted by colleges.
