About

Sustainability involves meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.  Not only does sustainability think long-term about the environment, but it also examines our economic, health, and social systems.

The Sustainability Office serves as a facilitator in the University's move towards sustainability, acting through a collaborative process involving staff, students, faculty and administrators towards making Bemidji State a more ecologically and economically sustainable campus community. The office is responsible for the education, communication, planning, and management of environmental issues on campus and also expected to participate in community environmental initiatives.




"Working together, we have proven that sustainable development is possible; that reforestation of degraded land is possible; and that exemplary governance is possible when ordinary citizens are informed, sensitized, mobilized and involved in direct action for the environment."
~ Wangari Maathai (Assistant Minister for Natural Resources)
