Active Sustainability Student Groups
The UM FLAT (Forum for Living with Appropriate Technology) is an experiential live-in resource (house) for UM students demonstrating the practicality of sustainable living. By experimenting with and educating others about the social, ethical, and environmental benefits of appropriate technology, the UM FLAT will help to establish the University of Montana as a model for exhibiting efficient building practices. The ultimate goal of the UM FLAT is to encourage the development of efficient and affordable homes for a sustainable society. By retro-fitting an existing home the utility of the UM FLAT demonstration resources could be easily applied to the Missoula community.
Camas is a literary magazine published in the Environmental Studies Graduate Program of the University of Montana. Camas is created and produced completely by graduate students in the Environmental Studies department. Our goals are to encourage a dialogue on environmental and cultural issues in the West, celebrate the people who work, study, write, and live here, and to provide an opportunity for students and emerging writers to publish their work alongside established environmental authors.
The "Forestry Club" is an association where students can come together to discuss, and participate in, numerous school related events such as the Annual Forester's Ball, the UM Woodsman's Team, and the Lubrecht Experimental Forest Section 13 management, along with many other events.
The UM Climate Response Club seeks to engage and mobilize the campus community to combat the climate crisis and strengthen future capacity for larger-scale action
