Community Impact

NSCC is committed to accelerating student and community innovation and entrepreneurial capacity. NSCC is committed to the success of Nova Scotia’s diverse students, cultures and communities. We do this by: 

Enhancing applied research

We partner with key industries and sectors on research projects to support their growth and prepare our students for a wide range of rewarding careers.  

Accelerating community innovation

We connect students with local innovators province-wide to develop products and solutions for environmental, social and business challenges.

Empowering diverse communities

Our commitment to inclusive, equitable and accessible learning gives more students the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in our province and in the global economy. 

Working with Indigenous communities

We support Indigenous students’ success and expanded employment options, and create learning opportunities for Indigenous students and communities across Nova Scotia.

Expanding strategic sectors

Through partnerships, we develop and improve programs to better support key growth sectors ranging from oceans and geomatics to alternative energy and sustainable agriproducts.
