“Most of the early adopters of deep sustainability activities in higher education tend to be smaller schools that can be more nimble at making whole systems transformations. Penn State has the opportunity to be a leader among research institutions at infusing sustainability across its colleges and campuses.”
Geoff Chase
Sustainability is the simultaneous pursuit of human health and happiness, environmental quality, and economic well-being for current and future generations. It is grounded on the ethical commitments to the well-being not only of current populations, but also to the capabilities and flourishing of future generations, and the deep interconnections between ecological and human flourishing and happiness.

Careers in Sustainability
This is not about philanthropy or Corporate Social Responsibility. It is hard business logic. Those companies who embrace the importance of sustainability will grow faster and create more value for shareholders.

Commun cat ons
The Sustainability Institute leads and supports Penn State in the pursuit of sustainability across all functions (teaching and learning, research and discovery, outreach and engagement, administration and operations)
by wisely utilizing and creating resources, building the capacities of faculty, staff, and students, and reducing barriers to action

in order for Penn State to become a catalyst for broader societal advances and achieve its full potential as a global leader in higher education.

Penn State faculty, staff, and students are committed to the harmonization of human and natural systems in all of their decisions and engage and inspire others to do the same.
