Earthwise Eagles: Sustainability at MSU

Morehead State University is dedicated to preserving the natural environment and conserving resources for future generations. We encourage all students, faculty and staff to become much more engaged as a university community to create an environmentally sustainable campus. Promote a culture of social, economic and environmental responsibility by becoming an Earthwise Eagle. We can make a difference!

What is Sustainability?  

Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony. Sustainability fulfills the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations, ensuring that we continue to have the resources needed to protect human health and our environment.


What's New? 

Campus Outdoor Nation Challenge: Join the 6 week challenge and help us earn the title of most outdoorsy school! Participate by joining organized events on our calendar, on your own or with friends! As long as you are active outside and enter your activities, you will have a chance at winning some fantastic outdoor gear every week.

October is Sustainability Month!: The Earthwise Eagles want to hear from you! Throughout the month of October, we will be seeking engaging conversations and looking for great examples of sustainable actions through our social media sites on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The more you engage with us and post to our sites, the greater your chances of winning some great prizes. We have gift cards and sustainable gear to give away, so don't be shy, participate all month!
