Second Nature continues to produce and curate resources that focus on the unique challenges faced by minority-serving institutions (MSIs) and under-resourced institutions (URIs). Check back frequently as new resources are posted.

Second Nature, working with topic experts, has developed a series of briefing papers focused on key issues related to higher education’s role in creating a sustainable society. These concise publications provide presidents, senior administrators, and anyone interested in campus sustainability with information, ideas, and practical steps to help them fulfill their commitment through the ACUPCC and achieve their sustainability goals.
