About the Green Center

The Green Center at Lincoln Land Community College in Springfield, IL is designed to provide green jobs training and serve as a resource for the LLCC and greater Springfield community on topics related to green jobs and sustainability.

Through the content on this website, professional training, workshops, degree and certificate programs, and other forms of outreach, the Green Center seeks to help educate a new green workforce and inform citizens, businesses, and organizations about ways they can live more sustainable lives.

The Green Center also strives to foster a focus on campus sustainability at LLCC.

In addition, the Green Center serves as a clearinghouse for green jobs career development and information on community rebates, grants, tax incentives, and funding opportunities.

About IGEN

The Green Center at Lincoln Land Community College is a member of IGEN, the Illinois Green Economy Network unites the state's 48 community colleges in a joint effort to stimulate the state's green economy through the strategic provision of green workforce training, market transformation, and community outreach.

LLCC's Green Center is one of 12 IGEN member colleges to receive funding for sustainability professionals in 2010, thanks to a grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO). Due to these funds and additional support from the Illinois Congressional Representatives, the Department of Education, and the Department of Energy, funding support exists through September 2012.

Both IGEN and the Green Center at LLCC are actively seeking additional funding for campus and community green jobs training and sustainability projects.
