About CURC

CURC is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating the exchange of technical knowledge and best practices among higher ed sustainability and facilities management professionals. This collaboration brings CURC back to its 1990’s roots when campus recycling managers gathered for education and networking at the annual NRC Congresses. What began as an NRC informal Caucus, evolved into an NRC Council, and in 2009 became an independent Coalition.
