Students for a Sustainable Future

Students for a Sustainable Future logo.

SSF is a student organization at Missouri State committed to advancing campus sustainability through education, motivation, and action.

The purpose of this organization is two fold: to educate and motivate.

We shall educate students, faculty, staff and the community about the reality and effects of global climate change; awaken the community to this tremendous opportunity to partake in a global movement of historical significance; and to present feasible and practical opportunities to the community to make a difference through their every day life style choices. We shall also empower people to use their time, talent, and passion to make a difference in this effort; and work together to support each other in this momentous task.

For Spring 2015, Students for a Sustainable Future meets every Monday at 4:00 pm in Temple Hall 105.

Missouri State University Campus Garden

Campus Garden

The mission of the Campus Garden is to raise awareness of student sustainability initiatives in the Springfield community, to provide students with the opportunity to be involved with and promote student-run organizations, and to promote organic agriculture for the benefit of the students, the university, and the community.

The Campus Garden allows students to plant, maintain, and harvest vegetables, while also providing healthy produce.

The MSU Campus Garden is a student run sustainability project made possible by the Student Government Association. Proposed and first built in 2011 by Jake Berger and Ben Wensel (with help from the SGA), the garden is now in its third year.

United Students for Fair TradeFair Trade

The purpose of United Students for Fair Trade (Missouri State Chapter) is to combat the global inequality of an unfair economic system. We realize that there are those who work for an unfair daily wage; those who farm for less than one dollar per day.

Our mission is to educate people about what fair trade is and how to get involved.

What is fair trade?

Fair trade is a movement that seeks fair wages producers (farmers and artisans). As a group of students, we stand together to support this movement by educating others of what fair trade is, promoting it in our university, and ultimately help those who need help.
