Northwest honored with Excellence and Innovation Award

The American Association of State Colleges and Universities honored Northwest Missouri State University with its Excellence and Innovation Award for sustainable development.

The AASCU honors institutions for excellence and innovation in seven categories: teacher education, civic learning and community engagement, international education, leadership development and diversity, regional and economic development, student success and college completion, and sustainability and sustainable development.

In granting Northwest the Sustainability and Sustainable Development Award, the organization highlighted the University’s comprehensive sustainability system, which includes programs and services related to energy management, recycling, education and partnerships, and the Missouri Arboretum – a designation Northwest received in 1993 in recognition of its long history of cultivating and preserving trees.

Northwest President Dr. John Jasinski accepted the award on Northwest’s behalf during the opening session of AASCU’s annual meeting.
