As we all process and come to terms with the results of the election, the work continues and we keep on keeping on.

National Community College Sustainability Webinar

Community Colleges and the National Council for Science and the Environment

November 15th, 1:30 PM Central Time

This webinar will feature connections between the NCSE and community colleges through the NCSE’s Community College Alliance for Sustainability Education (CCASE).  Our presenters will be:

Michelle Wyman, Executive Director of the NCSE.

Wyman will discuss the growing role for community colleges at NCSE as well as the upcoming NCSE conference focusing on Environmental Health.

James Miller (Coordinator, Project Admin & Research); Kirk Sawyer (Professor, EMERGE) from Seminole State College of Florida.

The EMERGE program provides foundational, project-based learning opportunities to first- and second-year college students via a multifaceted certificate curriculum in sustainability and renewable energy that’s designed both to complement technical education degrees and to enrich liberal arts studies.  Focuses include hands-on laboratories that create certification pathways for future technicians as well as co-curricular projects that enhance engagement among non-technical students and make for a better informed, globally conscious citizenry.  Seminole State is a CCASE member and will also discuss their relationship with NCSE.

We may also have some time to discuss the impact of the election on our work.
