Sustainability Alumni

Our commitment to engaging Nittany Lions as sustainability leaders doesn’t stop when our students graduate. Penn State wants to help its alumni be lifelong learners and practitioners of sustainability and is proud to boast an extensive network of alumni leading sustainability efforts around the world.

Starting in 2021, the Sustainability Institute is working to establish an official Sustainability Alumni Interest Group within the Penn State Alumni Association to help alumni working or interested in sustainability network with each other and stay connected to the university’s work. If you are interested in joining, helping us establish this group, and/or suggesting initiatives for the new group, please contact Peter Boger, SI Assistant Director of Community Engagement, at
