Strategic Plan for Sustainability

Bemidji State University published its first Strategic Plan for Sustainability in 2009 for the years 2008-2013.  During those 5 years we focused on three main strategies:

  • Reduce our carbon footprint
  • Model stewardship of land and water
  • Motivate, educate, and outreach on sustainability issues

See our Sustainability Progress Report for 2008 – 2016.

In the 2016 – 2017 academic year, we engaged with a new Strategic Planning process. We held 6 meetings with people from across BSU and NTC as well as the broader community to help identify and define our sustainability goals over the next 3 years.

We have created a Sustainability Plan Framework Document that sets the stage for our efforts from 2017 – 2020. We intend to release a finalized plan that will include specific strategies on how to reach our goals and identify key leaders responsible for moving our efforts forward.
