Environmental Management System
Educating leaders has always been at the core of the Missouri University of Science and Technology's (Missouri S&T) mission. Founded in 1870 as the Missouri School of Mines (MSM), the campus became the first technological university west of the Mississippi and one of the first in the United States. For over 130 years, Missouri S&T has been one of the nation's premiere research universities for educating leaders in engineering, science and technology.

As the world's dependence on science and technology continues to grow, tomorrow's engineers and scientists need to be leaders in environmental excellence. The Missouri University of Science and Technology recognizes the importance of this environmental stewardship and has developed a comprehensive environmental management system (EMS) to meet its demands. Our EMS program is dedicated to integrating environmental stewardship into education, research, administration and business activities of the university. Missouri S&T's EMS is one of the leading programs in the country. In June 2001, the campus became the first university in the nation to obtain ISO 14001 certification for a campus wide EMS.

ISO 14001 is a widely accepted international standard for environmental management systems. It requires an organization to define the environmental responsibilities of all employees and students and requires top management to provide the resources necessary to ensure continual environmental improvement.
