The university will be an environmentally literate community whose members think critically and act, individually and collectively, as model stewards of the natural world.
Our three campus goals are:
1. Minimizing materials impact, emissions, toxins, solid waste, and consumption
2. Conserving, stewarding, and restoring natural systems
3. Advancing environmental literacy and engagement through research, education, and community programs
