More students at the University of Hawaii may pursue HVAC careers thanks to funding from Johnson Controls. The company’s recent $58,000 gift will fund scholarships and provide equipment for Honolulu Community College’s Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Technology (RAC) program.
The vice president for community colleges, Dr. John Morton said, “Sustainability is an important goal but also an important value for the UH Community Colleges. We thank Johnson Controls for its continued support and partnership, and for this generous gift in support of training the future workers in Hawaii’s green industries.”
Dr. Erika Lacro, chancellor of Honolulu Community College, added, “This generous gift will help Honolulu CC keep important programs such as Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Technology current with industry standards. Students will train on innovative equipment to help move the future of Hawaii’s workforce to be more responsive with its energy needs. The Johnson Controls’ Fellows Program is offered across the UH System to engage students in all types of sustainable practices. These scholarships will aid students throughout their educational journey through to graduation.”
In 2011, UH and Johnson Controls launched the Fellows Program to prepare students for jobs in the growing green sector while identifying and cultivating students to lead sustainability efforts on their respective campuses. To date there have been more than 47 fellows educated by Johnson Controls employees who have coordinated activities such as renewable energy training summits, Earth Day celebrations, and peer-to-peer sustainability education.
“We’re training students to become critical thinkers and problem solvers, making them career- ready for jobs in sustainability and energy-efficiency industries,” said Judith Mouton, program director, Higher Education, Johnson Controls. “While learning about sustainability, they’re gaining valuable business leadership skills.”
