Sustainability plays an important role our future as recognized by the inclusion of sustainability as one our seven K-State 2025 “common elements”. Sustainability principles touch all areas of the university, including research, curriculum, student life, operations, and engagement.
The university-wide K-State 2025 Sustainability Strategic Planning Committee is charged to recommend a strategic action plan addressing sustainability within the context of these areas and K-State 2025 goals. The plan will include recommendations for key directions and goals, activities that will lead to implementation of those goals, expected outcomes between 2015 and 2025, and an overview of resources needed.
Work will take place primarily during the fall, with an initial plan due in January. As with all K-State 2025 committees, the plan will be shared with the K-State community for comment prior to finalizing in the spring.
