NC State Stewards


Supported by the University Sustainability Office, NC State Stewards are the university’s sustainability student ambassadors, moving NC State to a brighter, stronger and more sustainable future. NC State Stewards promote sustainable practices among their peers and the community through workshops, presentations and campus events. But most importantly, NC State Stewards are role models, inspiring campus to consider the impact that personal decisions have on the environment, community and the future. View the Stewards Video
