Innovations for Sustainable Solutions

Opportunities are endless to incorporate sustainability into research and learning. From degree programs to research projects to living-learning programs, students and faculty learn, enhance, and find support for addressing sustainability issues.

By utilizing the campus as a living lab, our campus community develops leadership, innovation, and sustainability solutions to address the Grand Challenges of our time — ranging from climate change to hunger to clean water shortages. The University of Maryland offers students hands-on opportunities to develop the skills to solve sustainability dilemmas, alongside the visionary faculty who champion environmental progress.
