Mission Statement

Beal Botanical Garden and Campus Arboretum illuminates the interconnectedness of people, plants, and place through learning, research, and stewardship.

Strategic Plan

Interconnectedness and teamwork are woven through the garden's mission and values. Connecting people to the garden, nature, and each other is central to our identity. Our success arises from working together and with our partners inside and outside the University for the advancement of the unit, MSU, and our community.

Our strategic plan defines our four core values: community, service, sustainability, and wellbeing. Together with our strategic pillars, these values will guide our work for the next five years and beyond.
