Mission Statement


The Dixie State University Sustainability Committee develops and provides support for sustainability initiatives within the campus and community in order to create a culture of students, faculty, staff, and community members who are socially, economically and environmentally responsible.

Vision Statement:

Our vision is to integrate sustainability throughout all DSU operations and to tread lightly on the planet by minimizing the natural resources we consume during our normal operations and to continuously reduce the amount of waste we generate. DSU will invest in employee development to encourage all employees to spread this vision into their homes, neighborhoods, and the community. We will teach our future leaders the benefits of acting now toward sustainability.


A Culture of Learning – Present our findings and initiatives at a public forum to encourage students, faculty, staff, and community members to partake in sustainable actions such as recycling.

A Culture of Values – Encourage respect and engagement to our environment by continuing to incorporate the sustainability vision in our everyday lives.

A Culture of Community – Be a leader in the sustainability initiative for our neighbors by setting a good example on campus and into our communities.


Make DSU a sustainability leader for the community via employee and student social responsibility to meet the needs and aspirations of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
