Join us in celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Center.  CSS is an evolution of the National Pollution Prevention Center for Higher Education (NPPC), which was created in 1991 by a US EPA competitive grant.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Dana Building to celebrate, connect, and learn with friends old and new. Network with sustainability leaders from the public and private sectors, share career experiences, talk with current students about what's happening now, and help shape the CSS vision for the next 25 years!
