What is NCPE?


The National Council for Preservation Education (NCPE) is a non-profit educational organization. We offer plenty of resources to people in the historic preservation field, such as:

  • Helping you learn about programs around the country
  • Offering career and internship opportunities to current students
  • Providing grants and a syllabus bank to faculty members

And much more!

You can find out more information about who we are, what our mission is, and the dedicated staff that contributes to this mission in the “About NCPE” tab above.
