The Upper Midwest Association for Campus Sustainability (UMACS) is a group of sustainability professionals in higher education sustainability working to share ideas and knowledge. UMACS hosts a conference every other year to showcase student projects, visit each other’s campuses, and network with area schools. The next conference will be held September 27-28, 2019 and hosted at Carleton College in Northfield, MN, just 45 minutes south of Minneapolis.
The mission of UMACS is to educate and inform our campus communities about environmental issues facing the world, how to discover concrete solutions for overcoming problems, and to inspire the next generation of leaders that will turn the tide toward a sustainable future. This education not only comes from the classroom but from the daily operation of the campus.
