As part of its commitment to sustainability, UMUC is offering a special presentation on environmental and climate literacy to celebrate Earth Day.

Come learn the basic information you need to know about the environment and climate change and hear about UMUC's efforts to promote sustainability in its facilities. Tips for saving energy and resources for home sustainability will also be discussed.

Cora Lee Gilbert, director of sustainability and contract services in Facilities Management, has worked at UMUC for more than 35 years. In the last ten years, she has incorporated sustainability initiatives into her tasks. On behalf of UMUC, she provides annual reports covering a range of sustainability information to the University System of Maryland and to Second Nature, an organization designed to mobilize higher education to work toward the goal of a sustainable society; speaks on UMUC's environmental efforts at events; and networks with outside organizations, such as the Maryland Environmental Service, the Maryland Green Registry, and the Prince George's County Department of the Environment.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn how UMUC is doing its part to protect the environment—and how you can do the same.

Students, faculty, and staff are invited to join us for this free presentation on Friday, April 21, from noon to 1 p.m. at the UMUC Academic Center at Largo Auditorium. Light refreshments will be provided. Seating is limited, so please register early.
