Future goals for developing green workforce training programs and/or incorporating sustainability across all curricula:
CFCC is committed to integrating sustainability throughout its Curriculum and Continuing Education programs, which mirrors the sustainability priorities of the North Carolina Community College system. The addition of the Sustainability Technologies program has provided CFCC with a hub around which different sustainability initiatives throughout campus can be brought together to benefit more students. For example, the Construction Management curriculum now shares safety, construction, green building and building science courses with the Sustainability Technologies curriculum. Likewise, Sustainability Technologies students are sent into programs outside of SST to complete their elective requirements. As students do this they weave together their once separate areas of expertise. This approach mimics how sustainability is being incorporated into most businesses and careers.
Campus sustainability projects underway, goals for these projects and courses utilizing campus sustainability projects as hand-on training opportunities for students:
What are you hoping to gain from the Greenforce Initiative?
CFCC is committed to being a part of a larger collaborative on sustainability training. We hope to share our successes and learn from other schools about how we can improve.
