MSU Beyond Coal is a campaign that launched in the Spring of 2010 to call for the transition of Michigan State University away from coal to 100% clean and renewable energy sources. This is part of a national campaign officially sponsored by the Sierra Student Coalition and Sierra Club on over 30 university campuses to shut down or replace campus-based coal plants and end our schools’ dependence on the coal-generated electricity.

Young people are organizing coast-to-coast and already making their campuses model institutions with efficiency, renewable energy and more. Now it’s time to finish the job and demand an end to dirty, dangerous and outdated coal. To read more about some of the universities involved and campuses that have successfully transitioned beyond coal, check out our report: Moving Campuses Beyond Coal.

To learn more about our campaign here at MSU, feel free to check out our the various committees we have in the tabs above (Coalitions, Grassroots, and Media).
