    For the third consecutive year, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (N.C. A&T) is ranked among the top 7 percent of universities in the world for campus environmental sustainability according to Universitas Indonesias (UI) GreenMetric Ranking of World Universities. Four hundred and seven universities were ranked in 2015. The University of Nottingham

    UI Greenmetric Ranks N.C. A&T In The Top 7 Percent Globally for Environmental Sustainability

    UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF THE COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES

    NADP Station at N.C. A&T State University

    National Research Support Project Impacts National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP)N.C. A&Ts NC 17 NADP site continues to track atmospheric deposition and its effects. NC 17 site operates two monitoring networks (the National Trends Network [NTN] and Mercury Deposition Network [MDN]). NADP data is critical to public safety, ecosystem services and environmental policies.

    (United Kingdom) was ranked as the worlds best green campus with the University of Connecticut and the University of California, Davis coming in second and third, respectively. N.C. A&T was ranked No. 28. The 2015 GreenMetric results were computed from information provided by universitys online survey under six categories infrastructure, energy and climate change (21 percent), waste management (18 percent), water usage (10 percent), transportation (18 percent) and education (18 percent). The following units contributed information for the 2015 survey: Office of Enrollment Management, Division of Human Resources, Facilities Department, Budget Office, Division of Research and Economic Development, Parking Services, Center for Energy and Training, Auxiliary Services, Energy and Environmental Systems, University Farm and the Waste Management Institute (WMI). Global, national and local concerns for water, waste, transportation, energy, climate, infrastructure and education issues present an opportunity and a challenge for N.C. A&T to mobilize resources and capabilities for developing effective sustainable solutions, said Dr. Godfrey Uzo Uzochukwu, director of the WMI.

    Thirty graduating seniors (B.A./B.S.) received

    Waste Management Certificates in December

    2015 and May 2016 at special ceremonies. The

    graduating seniors completed their degree and

    certificate requirements. The keynote speakers

    were Dr. Godfrey Uzochukwu, WMI director

    and Dr. Stephanie Luster-Teasley, associate

    professor, College of Engineering at N.C. A&T

    (December 2015) and Dr. Robin Coger, dean of

    the College of Engineering at N.C. A&T (May

    2016). The Waste Management Certificate

    highlights the training of N.C. A&T students in

    environmental security and waste management

    issues and signals to employers that N.C. A&T

    graduates are ready to broadly advance waste

    management and sustainability in their fields.

    The certificate adds value to the undergraduate

    training at N.C. A&T.

    Environmental Leadership at A&TNorth Carolina A&T State University has a history of providing leadership in addressing

    environmental sustainability issues through interdisciplinary centers, institutes and

    academic programs at all degree levels. These interdisciplinary collaborations have made

    the university a major contributor to understanding sustainability on a global scale.

    The university has taken advantage of the Higher Education Sustainability Bill (The

    Higher Education Opportunity Act-P.L. 110-315) signed by President George W. Bush in

    2008. In March 2011, Chancellor Harold Martin Sr. launched a robust recycling program

    and encouraged everyone to recycle. The goal of the recycling program is to improve the

    quality of life now and in the future.

    Environmental Security and Waste Management WorkshopPre-College Workshop on Environmental Security and Waste Management was

    conducted for 42 high school students and teachers in June and July 2015. The theme

    of the workshop was Environmental Security and Waste Management highlighting 62

    challenging environmental questions.
