Sustainability at Central Penn College

On Earth Day 2016, the Central Penn College “Green Team” held their first meeting at Central Penn’s Summerdale campus. Since that time the Green Team has grown to include faculty, staff, students, and administration, and has officially been recognized as the Central Penn College Sustainability Committee.
