North Lake College encourages a culture of environmental stewardship. Our mission, across campus, is to promote success, wellness and conservation.

We believe that sustainability is good business practice. The right investments now will generate eco-efficiencies and drive future resource preservation. Our sustainable practices are an ever-higher priority, a foundational part of campus culture designed to foster growing awareness of environmental responsibility.
