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 learning more, helping us establish this group, and/or suggesting initiatives for the new group, please contact Peter Boger, SI Assistant Director of Community Engagement, at

For any graduating seniors or current alumni interested in joining the group, complete the form at the button below and we will follow up with you. There is no cost to join or to participate and it is open to all, although to be a member of the executive board you must be a dues paying member of the Alumni Association.
