About Advisors:

Since 2008, the Office of Sustainability has worked with exceptional upperclassmen students to develop and teach an interactive lesson about sustainability and climate change and how each affect students, their studies, and future career prospects.

The Sustainability Advisors and their lesson have received incredible reviews from first-year students and their instructors. The goal for this sustainability lesson is to make it a core component of first-year education so that all students of the University of Maryland have a basic understanding of the fundamental issues of sustainability and opportunities to get involved with sustainability initiatives on campus.

For the past 11 years, the Student Sustainability Advisors presented lessons to first-year students in UNIV100, HONR100, Scholars Colloquium, and other first-year seminar classes. The Advisors program has reached more than 18,000 students to date, and presents to 2,300 students on average each Fall semester.
