About Energy Services and Sustainability
The Energy Services and Sustainability (ESS) Office was created by the Facilities department in an effort to meet the UNC-GA energy reduction goals of 30% by 2015. The ESS is also focused on helping to develop a systematic and integrated approach to the implementation of energy conservation measures campus wide and ensure that the university's continuous energy reduction goals are met.
Sustainability at NC A&T implies that our critical activities are (at a minimum) ecologically sound, socially just, and economically viable, and that they will continue to be so for future generations. We will ensure this by emphasizing these concepts in our curriculum and research, preparing students to contribute as working citizens to an environmentally sound and socially just society. NC A&T will function as a sustainable community, embodying responsible consumption of food and energy, treating its diverse members with respect and supporting these values in our surrounding community.
Through the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, North Carolina A&T State University is part of a collaboration being funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to advance research, education and infrastructure in nanoscale science, engineering and technology.
North Carolina A&T State University and Duke University have been awarded a $3 million National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Traineeship grant to develop a program for graduate students who are interested in microbiome research.
Dr. Shirley Malcom, head of education and human resource programs at the American Association for the Advancement of Science, will present the inaugural lecture of the Willie A. Deese Global Lecture Series.
