Environment & Sustainability Mission

Lake Superior College’s Mission Statement for the Environment and Sustainability:

We, the Lake Superior College community, believe our campus has an opportunity and responsibility to provide leadership to our college and local communities by conducting education and business as responsible stewards of the physical environment.  To this end, we are committed to:

  • conserve natural resources and support their sustainable use.
  • conduct college activities in a manner that safeguards the environmental health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and our surrounding communities.
  • promote environmental awareness, local action, and global thinking.

“A person who practices sustainability supports the interacting roles that healthy environments, economies, and social justice play in meeting the current and future needs of individuals, communities, and the environment.”

What is sustainable development? “Meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” – Brundtland Commission, 1987
