It emphasizes those institutions most closely aligned with local economies. The examples provided showcase the policies, people, and resources needed to foster a sustainable approach to campus development and management, as well as energize local communities to pursue new opportunities that are available throughout Appalachia.

Building Effective Green Energy Programs in Community Colleges

Many green economy advocates believe that green jobs training can be part of career pathways that help move unemployed and disconnected individuals—who are often low-skilled—from entry-level positions into higher-skilled, higher-paying jobs. But amidst all the excitement and funding, even those colleges at the forefront of green energy education have been struggling to build green workforce development programs as a result of three factors: 1) the state of the U.S. economy,2) the emerging nature of the green sector economy, and 3) the focus placed by the federal government on educating low-income and low-skilled individuals for this emerging sector in its training grants.
