Sustainability is the intersection of ecological balance, social justice and economic durability. Concordia recognizes that these three facets of life are interconnected, interdependent and necessary for thriving, maintainable societies.
Our students and faculty are leading efforts to reduce energy usage and food waste, grow and serve some of our own food and offer greener forms of transportation for our campus community.
Concordia Dining Services limits food waste by: sending produce trimmings to Jones Science Center for animal consumption; trayless dining in Anderson Commons; and donating overproduced food to the Great Plains Food Bank.Learn More
