Campus Sustainability Champion Nominees PERC Member Schools are invited to nominate Campus Sustainability Champions (CSC) for recognition at the PERC annual conference, which will take place October 9th on the Penn State campus. The Campus Sustainability Champion title is awarded to students, faculty, administrators, and staff of Pennsylvania colleges and universities who have made meaningful contributions benefiting social, economic and/or environmental sustainability on their campus, in their community, or in society at large.

Contributions can be in areas of teaching, research, co-curricular programs, campus culture, community service, and campus operations, including food recovery.

Each PERC Member School may make two nominations, one in each of two categories: (i) student and (ii) non-student. Either nomination can be for an individual or for a group.1 The PERC Executive Committee will select CSCs from among the nominees submitted by the school’s PERC Representative based on the meaningfulness of the service. PERC’s website displays a list of last year’s Campus Sustainability Champions. This year’s awardees and their accomplishments will be celebrated there as well. Several of the nominees will be invited to be panelists for the Sustainability Champions session at the annual conference. The purposes of the panel session are to share ideas, recognize successes, and inspire each other.

Nominations should be submitted by your school’s PERC representative. To find out who is your school’s representative, visit Schools with multiple campuses may submit two nominees per campus through their main campus rep.
