UMBC to build on success in shrinking carbon footprint through updated Climate Action Plan
Campus leaders, Vice President Lynne Schaefer (Administration and Finance), and Associate Vice President Lenn Caron (Facilities) lead the campus wide committees on climate and energy. They are also spearheading efforts to update UMBC's Climate Action Plan with support from Deborah Howard, Climate Action Coordinator, and Tanvi Gadhia, Sustainability Coordinator.
The two upcoming Climate Action Forums on Mon, Sept 25th (12-1pm lunch or 5-6pm dinner) will be an important way for the community to contribute to decisions being made about our future.
