Green Jobs Course Offerings:
Wilson Community College offers both credit and non-credit courses. Students are able to receive CEU’s for Continuing Education courses and workshops.
Future goals for developing green workforce training programs and/or incorporating sustainability across all curricula:
Wilson Community College provides quality educational programs and workshops to increase the knowledge and practice of sustainability. Science and technology are driving forces of the future. Through the development of sustainable curricula and programs, the College's "growing green" philosophy is entering new and challenging fields to develop a knowledge base, essential skills, and actions to put theory into practice. Wilson Community college is committed to offering workshops and programs in order to develop new knowledge and skills that enable our citizens and students to be better stewards of the planet. Wilson Community College is participating as a Lead Sector College in the state-wide Code Green Curriculum Improvement Project (CIP) to integrate sustainability across curriculums.
Campus sustainability projects underway and goals for these projects:
Courses utilizing campus sustainability projects as hand-on training opportunities for students:
We utilize our LEED Gold Student Services Building as a learning laboratory for both the community and our students. For example, the building features both geothermal and solar energy systems that our students helped to install and continue to help maintain. Tours are offered to the local community, to other community colleges, businesses and government agencies.
