The Department of Geographical Sciences is the first department at the University of Maryland College Park to receive the bronze certificate for the University Green Office ("Go Green") program, an inititative designed to engage staff, faculty and students in the promotion of "best environmental practices at the University of Maryland. The program supports and promotes offices that are taking steps toward reducing their environmental footprint." This is an especially grand achievement for the Department, given that GEOG has multiple office locations (2 in the Hartwick building and 1 in LeFrak Hall). Many thanks to everyone in the Department who helped to make this certification possible!
