North Carolina's community colleges have seen the growing tide and decided to incorporate training for green-collar jobs into their curriculum.
A green-jobs initiative will be the topic of discussion when the State Board of Community Colleges meets in Raleigh on Thursday. Community College system President Scott Ralls will explain the
new Code Green Initiative, which also incorporates sustainable
practices and building methods into how the campuses operate.
The board will decide whether to approve several Continuing Education courses including sustainable development, green consumerism, and alternative fuels technology.
The community colleges board meeting will also recognize three
small business centers from community colleges across the state for
excellence in service.
