The Minneapolis College of Art and Design is pleased to announce our involvement as a Host Sponsor for the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) 2015 Conference & Expo in Minneapolis, Oct. 25-28, themed Transforming Sustainability Education.

The AASHE annual conference engages campus change agents to lead the sustainability movement by providing a venue to network, exchange ideas and learn new tools and resources that can expand initiatives back on individual campuses and their surrounding communities. This pivotal conference serves as a reminder that while AASHE celebrates its tenth anniversary of hard work and dedication to the global sustainability transformation, opportunities abound in supporting colleges and universities in being a foundation for a thriving, equitable and ecologically healthy world.

“We appreciate all the support from our host institutions as we countdown the days until we convene in Minneapolis this fall. Attendees can expect riveting keynote addresses, exciting products and services in our Expo Hall and educational sessions that will be both informative as well as inspirational,” said AASHE Executive Director Meghan Fay Zahniser.

Additional host institutions of the AASHE 2015 Conference & Expo include our Master Host Institutions: Bemidji State University, Carleton College, Green Iowa, Macalester College, St. Olaf College, University of Minnesota - Twin Cities and University of St. Thomas; our regional host institution: Concordia College - Moorhead; and our supporting host institutions: Central College, College of Saint Benedict and University of South Dakota.
