Living and Learning Programs

The University of Maryland's Living and Learning Programs are unique programs that integrate academics into student living space. Students have the opportunity to live in the same residence hall as fellow members of their Living and Learning Program, forging friendships while simultaneously exploring academic interests. Living and Learning Programs cover areas ranging from engineering to creative writing, and many programs involve a central research activity or project. Completing a sustainability project in a Living and Learning Program can be a great complement to a sustainability-related major or a chance to pursue these issues while focusing on other fields in the classroom. Here are some examples of sustainability projects undertaken by students in Living and Learning Programs:

Nearly any Living and Learning Program can support sustainability interests. Talk to your program advisor to figure out how you can incorporate sustainability into your projects.
