Cultivating Sustainability Through General Education Coursework, Professional Development, and High-Impact Co-Curricular Programming and Career Development at Shippensburg University
Founded in 1871, Shippensburg University serves students primarily from South Central Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic region.
