Education and Student Life

A green campus is a real life laboratory for learning and practicing sustainability. Green components of the Health Professions & Student Services Building are integrated into curriculum and used as living laboratories for various courses. Real time building data is used in classrooms.

Over 30 faculty members in 16 departments have worked to incorporate a sustainability thread through their curriculum. They believe that sustainability is interdisciplinary in nature and runs through all areas of the college – math, philosophy, ethics and more. Faculty are helping to produce environmentally literate citizens and creating career paths that will make a difference. Our faculty want to make sure that NSCC students gain an understanding that they can contribute to the needed changes in our world.

NSCC also has a new Environmental Club with nearly 40 members. Students are inspired, advocate and network. We encourage them to see themselves as part of a very important initiative. For more information on the Environmental Club, please contact club advisor Joe Modugno.
