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.
