A brief description of the institution’s sustainability partnerships with the local community:

North Carolina Cooperative Extension gives residents easy access to the resources and expertise of NC State University and NC A&T State University. Through educational programs, publications, and events, Cooperative Extension field faculty deliver unbiased, research-based information to North Carolina citizens.

A few examples of environmental and natural resource extension throughout the state include: Industrial Extension Services’ energy conservation through assessments, on-site surveys, and workshops; the Soil Science 4H program teaching children about the ecosystem interactions between soil ; the Natural Resource Economic Development Outreach Program’s work to promote economic and community development through sustainable natural resource management; and North Carolina Sea Grant Extension Program promoting sustainable use of marine resources. Additional examples of local community partnerships can be found here: http://www.ncsu.edu/extension/environment-nr/.
