NSC Fortifies its College & University Initiative

Saying it is focusing on the future of the industry, the National Safety Council has launched two initiatives aimed at those studying to be safety professionals. Now, full-time college students pursuing careers in safety, health, and environmental programs can register for free NSC memberships. The council says student member benefits include opportunities to network with seasoned safety and health leaders, career development activities, the latest on industry news, an annual subscription to Safety+Health magazine and access to members-only educational resources.

The council has also created a Faculty Portal for college and university faculty who teach future safety professionals. Once registered, faculty can order desk copies of books, access a complete list of NSC Press books, and obtain industry news.

The new programs support NSC's College & University Initiative, which targets professors, students, and campus safety professionals in the higher education arena. The initiative also offers student award programs, including a Research Poster Award Program sponsored by the Campbell Institute and a Student Ambassador Award Program, each held annually at the NSC Congress & Expo.

For more information about student membership, contact Cindy Meehan, executive director, Membership, at 630-775-2121. To learn more about the Faculty Portal, contact Suzanne Powills, executive director, Publications, at 630-775-2103, or go to the College & University Initiative on the NSC Web site at http://network.nsc.org/index.php/College_University_Initiative.
