We accept part-time instructor applications all year long; when the division has a need to fill, they refer to the “pool” of applications on file. We are looking specifically for instructors who are qualified to teach the following course as early as FALL 2018 quarter (beginning September 2018):
Climate Protection and Environmental Sustainability: The Business of Mitigating Climate Change (3 units)
This class will provide the ability to assess financial, environmental and business aspects of mitigation efforts and to create a strategic competitive advantage for an organization. The instruction will include assessing the greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory of an organization, measuring and tracking carbon footprints. Areas of mitigation will be identified, including transportation, fuel usage, and facilities. The triple bottom line and the cost/benefit carbon analysis will be examined: economic incentives for increasing carbon sequestration and substitution, choosing the best tactics (e.g. renewable energy practice, carbon offsets, etc.) for mitigating carbon footprints. Students will study evaluating the effectiveness of a program. This course will utilize case studies to illustrate concepts. Climate protection and environmental sustainability requires a systems engineering approach to develop and implement a Strategic Plan for climate protection and sustainable practices. In this course, you will explore the forces driving sustainability change, the application of sustainable practices, and be guided through an analysis that will help you develop a vision and plan for implementation. Topics covered include: understanding the forces driving change, developing a Strategic Vision, identifying options and analyzing sustainability solutions (including cost/benefit analyses), and developing and communicating a Sustainability, Climate Protection, or Impact Reduction Plan. Learn a systems approach to developing a sustainable business or community - whether to affect the bottom line for energy usage, develop new markets, or “Go Green.”
