The Macoskey Center for Sustainability Education & Research

The Macoskey Center (MC) is a 70-acre sustainability education, demonstration, and research center at Slippery Rock University located in Central Western Pennsylvania. The MC was founded in 1990 by Dr. Robert A. Macoskey and the ALTER Project.


We aim to inspire and create a more just and sustainable future.


We achieve our vision at the MC through:

  1. Education to equip people from all walks of life with sustainability skills, values, and knowledge.
  2. Demonstration to inspire others through the sustainable management of our 70-acre homestead.
  3. Research to advance sustainability knowledge and provide learning opportunities for SRU and the larger community
