MSU’s 5,300-acre campus is the ideal laboratory for building a greener future. Our gold-rated sustainability efforts range from reducing carbon emissions and energy use in campus buildings and minimizing food waste in dining halls to generating power for our city-sized campus with the help of the largest solar carport array in North America. We also offer more than 600 courses incorporating sustainability into the curriculum or experiential learning.
Working toward the goal of achieving climate neutrality by 2050, we will continue making sustainability a critical part of campus culture as we work to maximize our impact while minimizing our footprint. Top-tier research universities have access to extraordinary resources and talent, making MSU the ideal place to research and collaborate on climate solutions, prepare tomorrow’s environmental leaders and share knowledge to guide policy and inform the public. By integrating the work necessary to meet this goal into research and curricular opportunities, MSU also can create high-impact experiences for students and enhance student success.
