Introduction to Sustainability at Penn State (SUS-002 in the Learning Resource Network)
This orientation will introduce Penn State employees to the concept of sustainability and how it relates to Penn State’s mission, strategic plan, and their role as employees. All segments of the university, from academics, research, operations, outreach and student affairs, are involved in this endeavor. We will offer many examples so that participants leave the one-hour session understanding ways to support the University’s mission to “ensure a sustainable future” and resources available for those efforts. Please join us.

Green Team Orientations
During this one-hour orientation, you will learn about the Green Teams program, its benefits and how to start one in your unit and share ideas with others. There is no cost for this training. We do ask that you register, whether or not you will attend in person, so that we can know how many people to expect. Sessions are offered almost every month via Adobe Connect, and some of them are also available in person. The full roster of dates and times and registration is available online.
The above programs are presented by Lydia Vandenbergh of the Sustainability Institute. Customized orientations for groups of ten or more can be scheduled by contacting Lydia.
