Sustainability at Michigan Tech

In 2018, students at Michigan Tech through their representative bodies, Undergraduate Student Government (USG) and Graduate Student Government (GSG), formally endorsed A Resolution for Action and Engagement in Sustainable Practice at Michigan Technological University, acknowledging that "Michigan Technological University is recognized as a leader in the research of complex problems, innovation, and in understanding the natural world that surrounds us here in the Upper Peninsula. By incorporating knowledge of sustainability into practices and culture across the University, we shall build a resilient community and prevent emergent problems."

Sustainability is a top priority at Michigan Tech - "Sustainability & Resilience" is one of nine Tech Forward Initiatives supported by the Office of the President. You can read more about Sustainability at Michigan Tech on the University's Sustainability Blog.

In January 2020, the Tech Forward Initiative on Sustainability and Resilience held a Listening Session to learn more about the concerns, priorities, and visions of campus and community members for the future of sustainability at Michigan Tech. The summary of that session is available here. Additional comments can still be submitted here.

On April 18, The Sustainability Demonstration House at Michigan Tech will be hosting the Keweenaw's First Waste Reduction Drive. You can learn more about this initiative here.
