"Our students are the future generation of leaders, and so it's important for us to help them promote sustainability and to become advocates and change agents in their own right. If not us, then who?"
Chancellor, Penn State Altoona

Sustainability Inspiration

Craig WeidemannPenn State will lead higher education in transformational innovations in policy, practice, and knowledge that address critical, complex, and systems-level sustainability challenges.

Leadership is the ability to inspire individuals, institutions, and society at-large to examine how their values and behaviors affect the quality of life on the planet, for current and future generations, and enlist their aid and support in the constant pursuit of a sustainable world. Leadership is demonstrated through the recognition of the frontiers of sustainability challenges, the effective directing of resources to these frontiers, the ability to create and practice truly transformational innovations, and their communication to others for widespread adoption.
