K. Groppi
Enngineering and Environmental Science Instructor
Instructor, Engineering Department
Engineering, STEM Center

My current focus is on education and facilitating renewal of campus and community systems to better align with social justice and sustainability practices. Relationships with people, curriculum, committees, the land, water, trees, and other living beings are important to my current work in culture change.

As a civil engineer before coming to Cabrillo, I enjoyed working on the design and construction of various bridge, harbor, road, building, retaining wall, drainage, and sanitary system projects as well as some flood and earthquake damage repair around Santa Cruz County.
