The Bellevue College Environmental Advisory Committee (EAC) was established in 2007 to advise campus constituencies regarding environmental and sustainable policies and programs on the BC campus. We strive to provide resources to the campus and community that allow us all to learn, work, live and play in a sustainable and healthy environment. Please feel free to contact the committee if you have any questions or comments.
The Environmental Advisory Committee provides a forum for identification and discussion of issues pertaining to sustainability.

The Committee provides oversight and advocacy for student and faculty led subcommittees and programs.
