Sustainability at the University of Minnesota, Morris--Second Nature Entry

Climate Leadership Awards 2014 Voting Winner, Baccalaureate Colleges

At Morris, it's easy to make the green choice--sustainability is so deeply ingrained in our everyday lives that we don't always think about the scope of its reach. For more than 100 years, our campus has been grounded in a mission of environmental sustainability, and this mission touches all aspects of university life. Both our pivotal successes and everyday victories range from the group up and make this place truly extraordinary!

Morris is a finalist in the 2014 Second Nature Climate Leadership Awards and represents 1 of only 4 baccalaureate colleges recognized. Beginning April 1, 2014, you can vote for Morris in a video contest.
