President’s Task Force for Campus Sustainability
The President’s Task Force for Campus Sustainability (PTFCS) was established in December 2019 by the College President, Dr. Pamela Gunter-Smith. She charges the PTFCS with:
- “coordinat[ing] activities and mak[ing] recommendations from the various groups” and
- to “not only position the College to join other institutions in signing the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Leadership Commitments, but also to take action and monitor progress."
The COVID-19 pandemic interrupted the activities PTFCS planned for spring 2020, but the task force reconvened in the fall of 2020.
- Joined PERC (Pennsylvania Environment Resource Consortium) becoming a member of it from November 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021
SIMAP (Sustainability Indicator Management & Analysis Platform) is a campus calculator tool to collect carbon footprint and nitrogen emissions. The Task Force is currently working with various offices collecting data to establish the YCP baseline.
