At Michigan State University, green is more than a school color. It’s an attitude of personal responsibility and hard work that is shared by students, faculty and staff who, through both small steps and big collective actions, show how daily intentional actions can make a big impact—and a better world.

Be Spartan Green is a university-wide sustainability engagement campaign encouraging campus dialogue about environmental conservation, renewable energy sources, waste reduction and recycling, climate change, food and water security, land use and development, education, health and social responsibility.

The Be Spartan Green campaign is managed by MSU Sustainability, which is an operational department within Infrastructure Planning and Facilities. Through education and engagement the department is transforming campus facilities and operations to conserve energy, reduce waste and maintain the campus ecosystem.


Michigan State University is a proud member of The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.
