Sustainability Strategic Plan

sunrise_ncsuNC State is amid creating its second Sustainability Strategic Plan. Since January 2016, the Sustainability Council and its working groups have worked to draft a Sustainability Strategic Plan that is reflective of the campus and community input received during listening sessions in winter 2016. In September 2016, the Council and the working groups finalized a draft plan, which was released for review. Feedback was gathered through December 2016, and the plan is moving to administrative review in Spring 2017.


Get Involved By Joining A Working Group

NC State’s Sustainability Council consists of five working groups, which are tasked with overseeing progress toward the Sustainability Strategic Plan. Though implementation of the plan will not begin until July 1, 2017, working groups will be developing tactics during Spring 2017. Membership in working groups is open to any member of the NC State community, as well as interested community members.
