Harbor College In The NewsHarbor Happenings Newsletter
Theatre students from Stockport College, Manchester UK visiting Harbor College this week.
Los Angeles Harbor College has been awarded the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce’s Environmental Award as well as recognitions of environmental leadership by Congresswoman-Elect Janice Hahn, Senator Ted Lieu, Assemblymember Warren Furutani, and Supervisor Don Knabe.
Harbor College, the first Los Angeles Community College to achieve LEED™ (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold from the U.S. Green Building Council by incorporating energy-efficient design and other sustainable strategies into the Northeast Academic Hall and Student Services Administration buildings site designs, has also incorporated the following environmental aspects in its new buildings and those under construction:
- Photovoltaic installations will provide over 2 mega watts of power, saving the burning of pollutant coal
- A wind generator
- Four electric vehicle charging stations
- Storm water is captured and treated on site. A storm water retention basin was constructed at the south end of campus to collect and control the outflow of storm water during a rainfall event. This takes the strain off of the municipal system and ultimately helps to alleviate flooding and contaminating conditions.
- The campus is already piped to use recycled water for irrigation. This will reduce the demand on the LADWP’s potable water systems and reduce operating costs.
- There is a comprehensive recycling plan in place on campus. Solar powered “Big Belly” receptacles have been placed around campus that utilize PV power to compact the recyclable waste, holding 5 times more trash than regular cans. Other bins around campus are regularly collected and separated at the Facilities and Maintenance yard.

LOS ANGELES HARBOR COLLEGE RECEIVES $1.5 MILLION GRANT TO ASSIST “AT RISK” STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES
Wilmington, CA – August 20, 2010 - Los Angeles Harbor College has been awarded a U. S. Department of Education Student Support Services Grant (Academic Success Action Plan – Project A.S.A.P.) for a total of $1.5 million dollars over the next five years to address the special learning needs of students with disabilities.
