Letter from the President



Dr. Diana Morris

Dr. Diana Morris,
Interim President


I hope you will enjoy your visit to the College’s web site and also consider making a personal visit to one or both of our campuses in Northeastern Wisconsin. Here, you will discover that the defining difference for our College is its overarching commitment to sustainable development.


At CMN, the concepts of “sustainability” are more deeply rooted and more broadly focused than you will find elsewhere in programs sometimes referred to as “green” studies. For our College and the Menominee People who chartered CMN, sustainable development is based in the moral code, governance structure, and sustainable forestry practices that evolved within the tribe over many centuries.


The curriculum of our College is built around these concepts and values. At the core are respect for the land, water, and air; partnership with other creatures of earth; and a way of living and working that achieves a balance between use and replenishment of all resources.


Our commitment extends beyond the natural world to all human endeavors - science, technology, business, human services, health, education, and the arts and humanities. You will find this commitment demonstrated across our curriculum and providing the nucleus of many CMN programs. In this way, we strive to prepare the next generation of citizens and leaders with the knowledge and tools to make thoughtful decisions and wise policy in accord with the values of sustainability.


As you browse our web pages, be sure to follow the link below to information about CMN's Sustainable Development Institute. These and other pages on our website will introduce you to our programs and the people who make them happen. They will illustrate why scholars from other colleges and universities and visitors from across the world are eager to visit the College of Menominee Nation. Know that you, too, are welcome here.


Dr. Diana Morris,

Interim President, College of Menominee Nation
