A brief description of how the strategic plan or amendment addresses the environmental dimensions of sustainability:

The foundation of the NSCC Strategic Plan is built on eight core values. Although all of these values touch on some aspect of sustainability, the Strategic Plan explicitly names ‘sustainability’ as a value, in the context of committing to “the continuous development of the social, economic, cultural and environmental sustainability of the College and our community partners”.

The eight values are detailed below.

Values
At NSCC we care about each other and we care deeply about what we are here to do. These eight values are the fundamental driving forces within our organization. They rest at the core of what we do and how we do it. We hold ourselves accountable for the embodiment of these values in our work together every day.

Student Success: We support and celebrate the success of our students as they undertake learning and pursue careers.

Employee Success: We recognize and honour the vital importance of each other’s contributions to the success of our students, the College and the communities we serve.

Accessibility: We commit to opening pathways and providing equitable opportunities to access our programs and services.

Diversity & Inclusion: We provide a learning environment that welcomes and embraces individuals from diverse communities and we take every opportunity to become more inclusive.

Safety: We focus on creating a culture of safety and well-being within our entire NSCC community and beyond.

Innovation: We believe there is always a better way and we will find it by inspiring openness, curiosity and creativity as a basis for excellence.

Sustainability: We commit to the continuous development of the social, economic, cultural and environmental sustainability of the College and our community partners.

Public Accountability: We work with integrity in every area of the College and believe we must be fundamentally accountable for the public’s trust in all that we do.
