Our Commitment to Sustainability

Sustainability is integral to Grand Valley State University's strategic mission, vision, and values and the Meijer Campus in Holland is proud of its commitment to sustainable practices

Sustainability is about meeting the needs of today without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

To make sure that the environmental, social, and economic impact of our activities will create a high quality of life for our current generation and those of the future, we can look at them through a framework of sustainability factors.


The major factors of sustainable development include:

  • Increasing environmental stewardship, restoration, and renewal.
  • Improving overall social conditions and quality of life.
  • Achieving economic vitality and overall fiscal sustainability.
  • Building upon the cultural capacity and our collective diversity, heritage, and intrinsic values.

By considering these factors when making decisions, we can become better global citizens.  It is everyone's responsibility to work toward a sustainable future, and for that reason, you’ll see that sustainability permeates all that we do at the Meijer Campus You’ll find sustainable practices:

  • in the classrooms
  • in our work spaces
  • outdoors
  • in our traditions
  • and all around campus
