Minority-Serving Institutions Green Report (2010)
Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) have joined the movement for environmental sustainability.
All across the nation, on college and university campuses large and small, MSIs have taken steps to conserve resources and to encourage greater awareness of our Earth’s interdependence
and fragility. Meeting present needs without compromising those of future generations is the essence of sustainability, and a large number of historically black colleges and universities, Hispanic-serving institutions and tribal colleges are rising to the challenge.
This MSI Green Report, the first to highlight MSI sustainability efforts, is designed to serve as a catalog of sustainability activities already underway at institutions founded to educate America’s historically marginalized groups. It will serve as a campus sustainability guide for students, parents, college administrators and others.
