Mission Statement: The National Consortium of Environmental Rhetoric & Writing represents a constellation of stakeholders locally and nationally centered around educational principles and cultural practices that promote the generative (creative and life-sustaining) ecological relationships of language and literacy to the maintenance and well being of diverse communities. 

The NCERW seeks to establish an intellectual commonwealth to guide curriculum development, stimulate resource-sharing, and support multi-modal approaches to community engagement, networking, and research in environmental rhetoric and writing. NCERW promotes environmental literacy across the curriculum in educational institutions (K-16) toward the advancement of environmental justice and community activism.
