PEP (Permanent Education Program)

In 1989, thanks to the generous support of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, EARTH created the Permanent Education Program (PEP). PEP serves as bridge between the University and its surrounding communities, supports the continual learning process of our alumni and coordinates seminars, conferences, educational tourism and the Institution’s community outreach program.
