 Academic Initiatives

Chandler-Gilbert Community College is committed to an ethic of responsible stewardship in all of our activities. CGCC strives to integrate environmental awareness and sustainability into our college operations as well as the educational experience of our students.
In support of the college's Strategic Goal to advance global learning and sustainability at CGCC, sustainability is integrated across all academic disciplines using a campus-wide theme of SEE Your World which focuses on the social, environmental and economic concerns of our local community and of the world.
The Sustainability & Ecological Literacy Certificate is designed for students seeking an Associate in Arts Degree and planning to transfer to a four-year college or university in liberal arts, social sciences, or business.  The program enhances students’ understanding of sustainable living practices associated with economics, equity and the environment through a combination of coursework and experiential learning.
The Academic Certificate (AC) in Sustainability is interdisciplinary and builds a strong academic expertise along the five pillars of sustainability, where students will examine and assess how to minimize unintended consequences and enhance a mutually productive relationship between man and nature. Students can pick and choose their classes for getting an academic certificate in sustainability in any one of the tracks. For more information, please visit our Sustainability page.
Chandler Gilbert Community College students can also transfer to ASU's School of Sustainability (BA degree program).
