MVSU Sustainability Initiative will create awareness, facilitate transformative dialogue and provide opportunities for meaningful activities geared toward the development of a sustainable campus and community. The initiative will focus on the importance of sustainability; provide support for the on-campus MVSU Recycling Center; offer educational opportunities for the campus and community; and to use revenue generated from the Recycling Center to provide scholarships for students participating in greening/ sustainability initiatives.
