Red Rocks Community College has made a commitment to the national challenge of creating and
sustaining a green workforce. In conjunction with our partners, the National Science Foundation,
Colorado School of Mines, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and Jefferson County Schools,
we have created a two-prong approach to this task.
First, we have created degree and certificate programs in Renewable Energy (Solar Photovoltaic, Solar
Thermal, and Wind Energy Technology), Energy and Industrial Maintenance, Energy Operations and
Process Technology, Environmental Technology, Water Quality Management, and Energy Audit. Please
view Green Careers to learn more.
Secondly, as educators we know that no matter where our students go after they attend college, the
issues of Energy, Environmental Stewardship, and Renewable Resources will face them. We realize
these issues will affect how productive they can be on the job or at home. Therefore, we have made the commitment to teach these issues across the curriculum. Go to GreenApps to see projects and lesson plans.
