In fall of 2008, Dr. Radtke, president of PSC created a Sustainability Task Force. The group was charged with gathering data and making recommendations that would make PSC a leader in promoting the advancement of sustainability goals within PSC's instructional programs, practices, and facilities. Promoting and improving recycling and waste reduction on campus also was a function of the group.
