Sustainability Goals & Initiatives

Wind, soil, and sun make an ideal laboratory for new ideas in sustainability.

As a rural liberal arts school “in the middle of everywhere,” UMN Morris is blessed with abundant wind, rich soil, and ample sun. We are at the intersection of diverse ecological prairie and forest regions which makes our location an ideal laboratory for new ideas in sustainability. It's a place for students, faculty, staff, and community members to collaborate and develop a model for sustainability leadership.

The Morris campus has a broad array of initiatives devoted to sustainability. Among our areas of focus are renewable energy, zero waste, and sustainable construction and renovation, but our efforts extend to almost every field of our operations.
