Green Liaisons

Peer to peer sustainability education program

Thank you for volunteering as a Green Liaison. Our mission is to raise awareness about environmentally-friendly activities and behaviors; act as informational channels regarding UM sustainability programs and initiatives (ex: Green Office, Green Lab, U Conserve Campaign…); identify and initiate environmental projects in academic and administrative units across the University. Below, you will find examples of offices and departments who started initiatives on their own. For more information, contact or call 305.284.8520
