Sustainability Councils, Chairs and Charters

Sustainability Councils & Chairs

 

Sustainability Councils, Chairs and Charters

Each College and unit at Penn State is invited to create a Sustainability Council. The purpose of the Sustainability Council is to strategically advance the University's sustainability goals from within its unit. Each Sustainability Council is headed by a Chair and composed of faculty, staff, students and stakeholders. Councils are seated by the Dean or Chancellor to provide leadership and ensure their college/campus is sustainable in all efforts, including research, teaching and operations. Chairs play a key role in identifying short- and long- term sustainability goals and strategies, creating a sustainability charter for the unit, and aligning the unit's unique mission and goals with the sustainable development goals of UN Agenda 2030. Below is a regularly updated list of current councils, chairs and charters.
