Chances are you've thought about the fundamentals of great communities. A strong economy with a range of career options. Innovation that holds the promise of a bright future. Education that builds skills to effect positive changes. And a quality of life that ensures the comfort and safety of everyone.
Yet the one thing that truly makes a community great is people – people with the passion, skills, and commitment to make a difference wherever and however they can. Chances are you know someone like this; someone who is a student or graduate of NSCC.
At our 13 locations across the province, we are encouraging our students to get involved in their communities in dynamic ways that are having a profound and transformative effect right now. Not just on our students and their career prospects, but on our environment, culture, youth, businesses, and way of life. Their knowledge, ideas, and energy are opening new frontiers, reshaping not just our province, but our world.
Chances are you've experienced the positive impact of this activity. But something else equally important is taking place. By connecting our communities and our students, NSCC is helping to create a sense of pride in our province – a desire among graduates to stay and build a stronger Nova Scotia. Through partnerships between the College, the Board, and the Province, we will continue to contribute to the growth and well-being of our communities. The chances that are open to us are virtually limitless.
