Mission & Vision Statements
Promoting environmental enjoyment, stewardship and sustainability through education, research and interaction with the natural world.
We will be the center for rich and diverse nature-based experiences for the University of Michigan and its surrounding communities. We will provide exceptionally beautiful gardens and natural areas for enjoyment. We will train a new generation of environmental leaders in sustainability, conservation and ecological restoration and engage research that deepens our understanding of plants, ecology, and the role of nature in our lives.
Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion strategic plan:
Along with the entire University of Michigan community we are deeply committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Diversity is one of several guiding principles identified by our key stakeholders during our strategic planning in January of 2015, prior to the University’s DE&I initiative. We believe that diversity creates a richer, healthier, and more resilient community, whether that community is ecological or human.
