At MSU, green is much more than a school color. It’s an attitude of personal responsibility and hard work that is shared by students, faculty, and staff, who through both small steps and big collective actions, show how daily collective actions can make a big impact—and a better world.

That attitude and ethic have helped make MSU one of the nation’s top sustainable campuses. While researching solutions that will help create a more sustainable world, Spartans also are making MSU a greener campus. Guided by our university-wide Be Spartan Green initiative, which combines research-based solutions with behavior changes, we are transforming campus facilities and operations to conserve energy, reduce waste, and maintain the campus ecosystem.
