Programs and Applied Research for Sustainable Communities
The College of Menominee Nation (CMN) partners with many organizations, agencies and communities for study initiatives and applied research on sustainability issues of local and global significance.
CMN's newest initiative is focused on the development of a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sustainable Agricultural Science. Design of the degree reflects ongoing work that has been carried out during the 26-year history of CMN through its Sustainable Development Institute (SDI). There, academic support and applied research have focused on areas of agriculture with an indigenous perspective, as well as sustainable forestry, climate change, indigenous planning, campus sustainability and other topics related to human-environmental relationships of importance to the Menominee and other American Indian and indigenous communities.
and Technical Assistance
As a federally recognized Land Grant institution, CMN is committed to providing outreach and technical assistance to the Menominee People, neighboring tribes, and other rural and metropolitan populations.
The College shares its resources by sponsoring and hosting a variety of community services ranging from job preparedness to home gardening. CMN’s Department of Continuing Education is the locus for this at the Keshena campus on the Menominee reservation. Programming includes traditional crafts and cultural enrichment to personal development for adults and youth.
