SGA Sustainability Committee:

Working to make UMD a national model for a green and carbon-free university!


As part of the University of Maryland's Student Government Association (SGA), the Sustainability Committee (SSC) advises the SGA and University administration to ensure that sustainability remains a campus-wide focus.


It is our duty to represent the student body's interests - if you've got an idea for a sustainability project, please take a moment to let us know! Or read up on what we're currently working on.


Explore on and off campus resources to fund your sustainability project, get help from UMD activists, and help take your green project to the next level.

Get Involved

Joining SSC is about joining a campus-wide green community! If you're passionate about environmentalism, join us for regular hikes, camping trips, picnics and more!

Why does divestment matter to you?


We've been going around campus looking for students to share why they think UMD and the rest of the University of Maryland System should commit to ditching dirty energy.
