Energy and water conservation have been topics of importance on the campus of Johnson C. Smith University, and it’s a message that’s been taken to the University’s surrounding communities.
Throughout the 2011-2012 academic year, the Center for Applied Leadership and Community Development (CALCD) at JCSU has conducted a series of Energy and Water Conservation Workshops to benefit the residents of the Northwest/Beatties Ford Road Corridor, as well as participants in the Women Entrepreneurship Program (WEP).
The workshops, lead by students from the University’s business department and Knight Fellows (students participating in the Public Leadership Program), were held during the monthly meetings of neighborhood associations along the Northwest Corridor. To date, the workshops have benefited the following communities:
- Eleanor Heights
- Lincoln Heights
- McCrorey Heights
- Oaklawn Park
- University Park
- Garden Park/Northwood Hills/Northwood Park
- Northwood Estates neighborhoods
In the coming months, workshops will be given for University Park North, Oakview Terrace, Wesley Heights, Hyde Park and Trinity Park.
