The PSEG Institute for Sustainability Studies (PSEGISS) is hosting the Point of Intervention (POI) tour on campus from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. with special panel speakers starting afterward at 1:30 p.m.

Dann Truitt, the program coordinator for PSEGISS, believes this tour challenges consumption economy and spreads the message that “nobody can do everything, but everybody can do something.”

It’s a great opportunity for individuals to explore various facets of sustainability, including environmental, fashion, donation, food and more.

PSEGISS is funded by PSEG, but the institute itself helps support research on campus regarding STEM initiatives.

PSEGISS also has a Green Team internship program where students are put into transdisciplinary teams to partner with corporations looking to become more sustainable.
