The University hosted the security operations for the 2012 Democratic National Convention, held September 4-7, 2012, and participated in events on and off campus that brought national attention to JCSU, including UFuture: A Summit for Innovative Young Thinkers which we co-hosted with the Congressional Black Caucus Institute.
The following is an overview of the University’s 2012-2013 accomplishments:
The Charlotte’s Web Mentoring Project began serving 20 at-risk males from West Charlotte High School to help them develop self-confidence as they took part in hands-on learning activities around technology.
The grand opening of Sustainability Village on April 1, 2013 showcased the aquaponic system and community garden which will serve as a prototype for the local community as well as for Mahanaim Village in Haiti. The project is an innovative living-learning prototype on campus that incorporates academic coursework, service-learning activities and humanitarian work that will be replicated in Haiti. One goal of the sustainability initiative is to address the food desert in the city’s Northwest Corridor.
