Environmental Focus Committee

Reports to the Provost

Purpose: Recommend curricular and programmatic changes related to environmental sciences/studies and sustainability to college councils and CGEIP primarily through a new minor (or minors). With a new minor (or minors), options include major revision or deletion of the current environmental science and policy minor – especially if the new minor meets the needs of more students. MSU is committed to meeting the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) Sustainability Tracking Assessment & Rating System (STARS) scorecard. Committee should be aware of the requirements through the AASHE STARS scorecard of the educational areas such that new curricula would meet goals I the long range plan to earn at least a silver rating in three years.
