Gateway Technical College continues to grow in its commitment to sustainable programming and environmentally conscious campus experience.
In 2014 Gateway received the Climate Leadership Award from Second Nature followed in 2015 with the Sustainable Education and Economic Develop Award from The American Association of Community Colleges. Throughout Gateway sustainable practices are evident from the use of solar tracking stations, micro wind turbines, electric vehicle charging stations, water retention ponds, rain gardens and urban farming plots. The focus of campus life, career pathways and community engagement have changed the educational climate throughout the college.
