When picturing the university learning environment, a classroom with desks and four walls may be the first image that comes to mind.

We intentionally create opportunities for students to participate in enriching activities that complement their classroom studies. PSU’s campus gardens are one such place where students can “learn by doing.”

With half the world’s population of seven billion now living in urban or rapidly urbanizing areas, any path to sustainability will have to negotiate the complexities and contradictions that define the modern city. Resilient yet damaging, cities hold the keys to an uncertain future. The disappearance of traditional community anchors has left a void in our cities, which are otherwise well-positioned to address global sustainability dilemmas. This is the opportunity of the 21st century for our urban universities: to employ their missions of education and service in solving these challenges while creating equitable economic opportunities for city denizens.
