A brief description of the institution’s sustainability partnerships with the local community:
Bridgewater College works collaboratively with New Community Project (NCP) on a number of ventures. We host the only college chapter of NCP.
Through an AmeriCorps VISTA grant, Bridgewater College is partnered with NCP which has both a local and college chapter. The organization is an international organization and sustainability is a key component of the mission of the organization. Through the VISTA project, we raised $775.00 to help complete the Sustainable Living Center on the compound of NCP in Harrisonburg, Va. Faculty have tied courses to NCP, whereby students participate in a number of volunteer capacities for the organization. The Bridgewater College chapter of NCP, raises awareness as well as funds to support the mission of the organization.
