NSCC Forums on Tolerance Support a Learning Environment
NSCC Forums teach tolerance, embrace diversity and support a learning environment.
NSCC Forums on Tolerance initiate educational challenges to students and members of the community to learn more about one another, bring about empathy and understanding toward other people, and to make a difference in ourselves, our neighborhoods, and our world. Since 1996, NSCC Forums have explored social injustice and its effects on the modern world and our own communities through topics ranging from the Holocaust to immigration and civil rights.
