Quote of the Day: ‘Penn State Forever’

Yesterday, Penn State became the first university to join the EPA in a sustainability partnership. The Collegian reports:

By joining the SPP, Penn State accepted the “Sustainability Challenge,” which means it will aim to reduce its carbon footprint, greenhouse gas emissions, waste and pollution. The agreement will allow the EPA to provide individualized tools and strategies to help the school function in a more environmentally efficient way, according to the SPP agreement.

The best quote in the article was from OPP communications coordinator Paul Ruskin…

“This partnership will help ensure the sustainability of Penn State,” Ruskin said. “What that means is that Penn State will be here 500 years from now. Penn State forever.”

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
