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 (email@example.com). Emails will be limited to coordination of monthly calls, planning efforts associated with the annual meeting, and reminders of upcoming activities.

This year's consortium will focus on the topic of effective collaborations (within campuses, between campuses, and between campuses and communities). Events will include guest speakers, panel discussions and group workshops. The conference schedule is still under development.
Registrations will be open until June 1; if you plan to stay the night, a block of rooms is available at a reduced rate through Tuesday, May 14th.
Since 2004, NECSC steering committee members have committed to hosting annual gatherings. As planning continues for the next 10 years, additional host institutions will emerge.
