Ep 40: University Sustainability with Penn State University

By Jay Siegel & Scott Breen

Grab your notebook and #2 pencil... we're going back to school! Through their operations, research, and course offerings, universities have a large carbon footprint and play a major role in advancing sustainability. Join us as we dive into the nuances of sustainability on college campuses, including a special focus on Penn State University, where one of its professors, Lucy McClain, includes our podcast in her course curriculum. In this episode, you'll hear from Dr. Paul Shrivastava, PSU's Chief Sustainability Officer, Professor McClain, and two of the students in Professor McClain's class who had the privilege of listening to our episodes (and bad jokes) for class. By the end of the episode, you'll be able to ace a test on university sustainability and identify how you can improve sustainability efforts at your current school or alma mater. ------ Sustainability Defined is the podcast that defines sustainability, one concept (and bad joke) at a time. Hosted by Jay Siegel and Scott Breen. Each episode focuses on a single topic that helps push sustainability forward. We explain each topic with the help of an experienced pro, place it within our organizational tree, and help our listeners define what exactly sustainability is, episode by episode. We have divided our organizational tree into the following seven sectors: Energy Cities Natural Environment Transportation Business Policy Social Each episode is categorized under one of our sectors and visually depicted within our organizational tree. The more episodes we complete, the more the tree will visually define what exactly sustainability means.
