As a Catholic institution of higher education, Mount Mercy University has an obligation to promote and reinforce good environmental stewardship by integrating the ethical, social, economic and ecological values of environmentally sustainable development into University policy, practice and curriculum.

To achieve a sustainable campus, Mount Mercy must ensure that the University's current needs are met today, without compromising the mission, longevity and prosperity of the institution or the ability of its students, faculty and staff to meet their future needs. Addressing sustainability across campus and within the surrounding community is a timely discussion in light of the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, which calls upon member institutions to "exercise leadership in their communities and throughout society by modeling ways to minimize global warming emissions, and by providing the knowledge and the educated graduates to achieve climate neutrality."

Mount Mercy is also a member of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) to further campus efforts toward building a healthy and just world. Through membership in AASHE, Mount Mercy will receive continued support in advancing its sustainability initiatives throughout the institution and in the community. Learn more about Mount Mercy and the AASHE >>

With these objectives in mind, Mount Mercy has set the following goals:

  •  Achieve carbon neutrality by 2060
  •  Increase campus awareness and involvement in environmentally sustainable practices
  •  Share Mount Mercy’s sustainable achievements to both internal and external communities
