Sustainability at the University of Maryland


The University of Maryland will achieve its goal of becoming a national model of a green university only with the participation of the campus community. Many students, faculty, and staff share the University’s ethic of environmental stewardship; their passion for the environment is a reason the University is already recognized as a campus sustainability leader. For example, because of the commitment of the campus community, the recycling rate increased and the production of solid waste decreased in recent years. More offices are purchasing paper made from recycled content and more people are taking public transportation than ever before.

The Culture section highlights programs that encourage sustainable behaviors or serve to educate the campus community about sustainability. Use the menu to the left to explore the content of this section.
