Integrating Sustainability Across the Curriculum (ISAC) Program was established to help Penn faculty introduce environmental sustainability into existing and new courses. Faculty participants explore sustainability concepts at a one-day workshop in the late spring, and then are partnered with a student research assistant to work over the summer integrating sustainability into the course syllabi, lectures, assignments, reading material, and tests.

The Staff & Faculty Eco-Reps Program is a peer education program that provides the tools to improve the environmental sustainability of Penn offices and labs. The program is comprised of over 100 staff and faculty members across the University representing a diverse set of offices, schools, and centers.
