The Northeast Campus Sustainability Consortium (NECSC)

NECSC logo

 The Northeast Campus Sustainability Consortium (NECSC) was established in October 2004 to support sustainability officers in advancing education about and demonstration of sustainable systems on university campuses in the northeast and maritime region. Organized around the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development, the NECSC members have committed to an annual meeting that advances campus sustainability by providing close networking opportunities, professional development, and access to the area’s vibrant and growing college and university sustainability practitioner community. With no formalized structure, the NECSC is a collaborative, participatory network serving sustainability professionals in higher education in the northeast region. 

Ongoing activities include monthly member-driven and facilitated calls, coordinated currently by the Princeton University Office of Sustainability. To be added to the NECSC distribution list, please contact Lisa Nicolaison (ln2@princeton.edu). Emails will be limited to coordination of monthly calls, planning efforts associated with the annual meeting, and reminders of upcoming activities.
