RA/GA Sustainability Manual

College House Resident Assistants (RAs) or Graduate Associates (GAs) have a unique opportunity to help frame the way their residents understand environmental sustainability at Penn.  

While every College House has a different culture and structure, learning in the context of residential living has great potential because it is situational, social, and subject to continuous improvements. 

Empowering more than 6,000 College House residents with knowledge about Penn’s environmental initiatives and giving them tips to enrich their understanding of individual lifestyle choices will have a significant impact on our campus’ performance – and our students’ lives – for years to come.
