MUM’s Sustainable Living Center

Earn your degree in a truly sustainable building. Completed in 2012, MUM’s new Sustainable Living center is the perfect educational environment for learning about sustainability. This building utilizes the most practical green building techniques and showcases them through informative displays to both students and visitors. The center combines classrooms, faculty offices, and a workshop under one unique roof.

Additionally, the Sustainable Living Center is not the only place on campus that is focused on sustainability and green initiatives. As you explore our campus, you will find passive solar utilized in the student dining hall, (renewable, ecologically friendly flooring) recycling in dorms, organic grounds maintenance, restorative prairie, compositing, campus greenhouses and local, organic food in our dining halls. Read more about all our campus sustainability initiatives.
