University Joins Green Sports Alliance

UNC Charlotte has joined the Green Sports Alliance, an organization that leverages sports to promote healthy and sustainable communities.

According to its website, the Green Sports Alliance achieves its success by "inspiring sports leagues, teams, venues, their partners and millions of fans to embrace renewable energy, healthy food, recycling, water efficiency, species preservation, safer chemicals and other environmentally preferable practices." UNC Charlotte has focused on developing facilities and practices that meet the needs of the next generation of students and educators while limiting the impact on the resources vital to the communal health of the region.

Charlotte 49ers fans began embracing the opportunity to develop a more responsible, socially conscious campus community. The Rose Football Center incorporates Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) elements in its design, and a zero-waste initiative is underway with plans for expansion. During home football games at Richardson Stadium, fans contribute to the University’s commitment to reduce waste via increased recycling and composting and reduced energy and water consumption.

UNC Charlotte will launch a 24-week "Coding Boot Camp" certificate program this November to meet the growing local, national and global demand for web developers.

The Coding Boot Camp at UNC Charlotte, which will run from Nov. 8, 2016, through May 20, 2017, is designed to accommodate the schedules of students and working professionals, with two evening classes during the week (6:30 - 9:30 PM.) and a four-hour class on Saturdays (10:00 AM - 2:00 PM).
