OC earns silver STAR

Okanagan College has been recognized for its commitment to sustainability

Okanagan College has been recognized for its commitment to sustainability with a silver STARS ranking from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.

The ranking makes Okanagan College the first community college in B.C. to receive this recognition.

“This new designation supports our greater vision for Okanagan College – that we serve, lead and anticipate the social, economic and environmental needs of communities,” said president Jim Hamilton.

STARS (the sustainability tracking, assessment and rating system) requires that institutions assess their sustainable practices in the areas of education and research, operations, planning, administration and engagement, and innovation.
