Beginning fall 2013, University Housing, in partnership with the Division of Academic and Student Affairs, the College of Sciences, and the Environmental Sciences program will offer a new living and learning village for students. The EcoVillage, located in Bragaw Hall on West Campus, creates an interdisciplinary educational experience that prepares students for life-long sustainable living.
The EcoVillage is open to all students and majors, and focuses on uniting students around the central goal of sustainable-living. The EcoVillage broadly defines sustainability to include everything from agriculture and energy consumption, to transportation and recycling.
The EcoVillage provides unique experiences allowing students to lead, serve, create, problem-solve and engage in complex issues facing the energy and environmental challenges of society. Beyond the classroom, members of the EcoVillage will engage with faculty members to explore local, regional and global approaches to advance sustainability.
Upper-class mentors will also support EcoVillage students by enhancing academic and co-curricular success and involvement at NC State. Through the foundation of sustainability, mentors help support students' transition to the University and continue to provide support for personal and career development.
The EcoVillage is centrally located and features easy access to classes, dining, the Student Cinema, and the Student Health Center.
Interested in becoming part of the green movement on NC State's campus and in our world? Join the inaugural class of the EcoVillage beginning this fall. This is YOUR time!
