Sustainability Action Plan

The Sustainability Action Plan is a road map to monitor and improve UM sustainability performance. Based on our STARS Silver rating, the report establishes a series of goals for 2019. Feel free to consult the document, see how it can apply to your area of expertise. We would not be able to make UM a more sustainable campus without you, send us your feedback! Learn more

Staff Opportunities


Butterfly Garden planting

May 26, 9.30 am in the resting area of the Professional Arts Center.
Help us plant a butterfly garden in the Professional Art Center resting areas located behind the building. We hope that this small area of native shrubs will attract diverse species of SE Florida butterflies. Having a relaxation area like this will help staff, patients and visitors reconnect with nature. Volunteers can come at 9.30am (closed shoes, long pants and sleeves, a hat, a water bottle, and some elbow grease). You can RSVP here.

Don't throw away!
