Code Green Super CIP: Integrating Sustainability into Technical Education

About

Workforce training in North Carolina is getting a “green” makeover. North Carolina’s economy has changed to include a greater concentration of sustainability products, processes, practices, and technologies.

North Carolina Community Colleges have emerged as a primary driver in the state’s sustainability sector. The Code Green Super CIP aims to integrate sustainability skills across the curriculum beginning in the areas of energy, building, environment, transportation, and engineering technology.

By incorporating sustainability skills and knowledge into curriculum programs, colleges are better able to prepare students for success in the 21st century workforce. Join us for this webinar and learn more about this exciting program.
