Sustainability is part of everything at NSCC, from curriculum to the colleges’ values. Presently, NSCC is the highest-scoring college in Canada via STARS and the Overall Top Performing Associate College on the Sustainable Campus Index. Across NSCC, work continues to improve that score, further the SDGs and lead difference-making efforts. More than 20K students attend NSCC each year. A survey of graduates shows that 91% are employed one year after graduation and 90% of those live and work in Nova Scotia. This creates a distinct opportunity to significantly contribute to the sustainable development of the province through the college’s vision — to transform Nova Scotia one learner at a time.
