CLUE creates learning opportunities for individuals and communities to help them make sound land use decisions that result in an inclusive, equitable and sustainable Wisconsin.  


Individuals and communities make well-informed land use decisions with confidence. Their decisions are legally, ethically, ecologically, and economically sound for all people. 


Inclusive public involvement is fundamental for making sound land use decisions. Natural resources are the foundation of land use decision-making. 

Advancing social and environmental justice is fundamental to sound land use decisions and equitable service to rural and urban communities.

We are committed to advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism in our work with communities, organizations, and students. 

We base our decisions on our mission.  

We stand behind our mission and beliefs regardless of our sources of funding or in-kind services.   

Any sources of funding or in-kind services will accept and understand our mission and beliefs.  

A sustainable society is one that can maintain an adequate or better level of economic activity indefinitely, without undermining either the ecological or social systems upon which the society is dependent, and whose political system retains the full confidence of the citizenry.
