HHD Sustainability Council
The Health and Human Development Sustainability Council seeks to deepen and expand a commitment to sustainability within the college through, teaching, research, and service by involving faculty, staff, and students in its efforts.
The Sustainability Institute at Penn State defines sustainability as “The simultaneous pursuit of human health and happiness, environmental quality, and economic well-being for current and future generations.”
Consistent with this definition, the College of Health and Human Development Sustainability Council seeks to operationalize this approach by working toward the implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations Agenda 2030.
Additionally, Penn State Sustainability is encouraging colleges and campuses to own sustainability activities in their respective units and organically grow them from within.
