Positive Energy Fund

Use Your Inspiration to Change the World

Millersville University is converting building energy savings into human energy by using dollars from utility rebates and the Lombardo Welcome Center's energy savings to fund faculty-, staff- and student-led projects that contribute positively to local and global communities using the structure of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development

The purpose of the Positive Energy Fund is to raise awareness of the interconnected economic, social and environmental challenges confronting the world and to accelerate local solutions to those challenges in Lancaster County by Millersville University faculty, staff and students.
