About: The Center for Sustainability was founded in 1990 on 83-acres of Slippery Rock University (SRU). Since then, it has served as a resource for sustainability education, demonstration, and research for SRU faculty, staff, students, and community members.
Vision: The Center aims to fulfill SRU’s educational, sustainability, and strategic missions by creating an environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable and just future.
- Educating and inspiring the SRU and regional communities through sustainability workshops, tours, programming, interdisciplinary research, as well as outdoor recreational experiences
- Demonstrating how people from all walks of life can live more sustainably through the management and maintenance of our 83-acre homestead
- Cultivating mutually beneficial partnerships to effectively integrate SRU’s curriculum with the co-curriculum, to enhance education, research, and demonstration, as well as to advance the quality of life both on and off-campus
