A brief description of how the institution engages in public policy advocacy for sustainability, including the issues, bills, and ordinances for or against which the institution has advocated:

The University's Farm to College program is a leader in sustainable food systems throughout the nation. In 2007, members of the program successfully advocated for Montana Senate Bill 328 which allows public institutions more flexibility to buy Montana-produced food. This was accomplished through an optional exemption in the Montana Procurement Act that requires public institutions to buy the least expensive food possible in contract purchases.
