Jay Antle is executive director of sustainability and professor of history at Johnson County Community College. As an undergraduate student, he took a field course in Yellowstone National Park that led him to become deeply interested in environmental issues. While in graduate school, Antle participated in an exchange program with Johnson County Community College (JCCC) that ultimately led him to secure a professorship there in 2000 that he still holds. His responsibilities at JCCC have grown to include heading up the college’s sustainability program as the executive director of the college’s Sustainability Center. Antle currently serves as vice-chair of the Board of Directors of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).
