We advance sustainability through our operations, education, and community engagement. We are committed to climate action. With the first geothermal district energy system in MN & a history of innovation, we have reduced our natural gas use by 60-70%. Now we are developing our next actions focused on eliminating operational emissions, scaling sustainability across the curriculum, and deepening experiences in sustainability solutions on campus and in our community. See sustainability in our institutional strategic plan.
The Sustainability Working Group will soon release a report and plan sharing our goals and strategies for change in decarbonization, education, and collaboration with local and higher education networks to accelerate change. See our review informed by students, faculty, staff, alumni, and partners.
