The Upper Midwest Association for Campus Sustainability (UMACS) Conference attracts a variety of college and university students, campus sustainability professionals, faculty, and staff. The event provides cutting-edge research and data from regional colleges and universities on sustainability policy and practice. Attendees have an opportunity for regional-wide networking and collaboration-building centered around campus and community sustainability.
The 2021 UMACS Conference theme, Healthy Planet, Healthy People: Advancing Justice in Challenging Times, aims to bring attention to the recent health, social justice, and environmental challenges facing our campuses and our communities.
