Responsible Stewardship


“In the broadest sense, we must tend to our community as well as the physical environment so that our students can have real opportunities to succeed.” - President Potter.

Sustainability includes systems that are socially just, environmentally sound, and economically prosperous. St. Cloud State University strives to be a sustainable system by developing and applying best practices to support and nourish all aspects of our university. To ensure environmental, organizational, and social sustainability, St. Cloud State strives to develop programs and services that reduce the university’s impact on the environment, are sustainable in their operations, and educate our students to become responsible stewards of our resources, communities and world.
