Student Spotlight: Meet Joshua Carley, Program Coordinator for NACC
Carley is a dedicated second-year Nonprofit Management student currently pursuing his master’s degree in Public Service & Administration at the Bush School of Government & Public Service. Carley is currently serving a local tourism organization as a Bush Board Fellow and is the student worker for NACC. Carley is deeply interested in cultivating and sustaining diverse community spaces, specifically focusing on looking at museums and local destination sites as areas of egalitarianism.
This past summer, Carley had the opportunity to explore both Washington D.C. and New York City to visit tourism nonprofits that represent our nation’s busiest cities. “The issues that face our world and tourism today deal heavily with how we can remain environmentally respectful of the space we travel. Organizations like Destination D.C. are leading the way in developing sustainable tourism that positively impacts the local culture and environment.” Carley looks forward to finding ways to scale these practices into his local community of Bryan/College Station and leave a green impact on tourism in Aggieland.
Upon graduation, Carley seeks to continue working with tourism nonprofits to help facilitate safe, sustainable, and exciting programming for locals and visitors alike.
