Former ISS Student Fellows program transitions to the SSC as the Emerging Sustainability Leaders program
The Student Sustainability Center, the Institute for Sustainable Solutions and the Campus Sustainability Office all make up a broader vision, referred to as Sustainability at PSU. Each organization plays a unique role in bringing sustainability to life for students. The Student Sustainability Center (SSC) offers students opportunities to get involved with hands-ons volunteer and leadership programs. In an effort to connect professional development and student affairs, the impactful opportunities offered in the ISS Student Fellows Program are transitioning to the SSC beginning fall term 2020.
In this transitional year, the SSC hopes to maintain many of the opportunities that have been available to students, such as networking events and the Sustainability Mentorship Program. The program has been rebranded and is now referred to as the Emerging Sustainability Leaders Program to bring together students passionate about sustainability and support their professional growth.
The Emerging Sustainability Leaders Program will offer students a variety of opportunities to get involved with varied levels of commitment. The network will act as the larger base of students involved in sustainability at PSU, providing access to events, workshops, programs and job opportunities.
