The Green Terp Program is a social marketing effort to promote environmentally responsible choices in partnership with the Department of Resident Life and the Office of Sustainability.
All students can be Green Terps by getting involved with sustainability through academics, research, student groups, professional opportunities, and by taking individual action. Throughout the academic year, we offer a variety of opportunities for engagement and can be found at many collaborative events on campus such as First Look Fair, Bike Week, UMD Farmers Markets, and Res Life Community Welcomes.
