Environmental health and well-being is a top priority at Towson University. We are dedicated to building sustainability through energy conservation, waste reduction, education, research and civic engagement.
As a signatory of the President’s Climate Commitment, the university has implemented a variety of initiatives to improve sustainability, including a green building policy, campus metering, single-stream recycling, composting and a robust alternative transportation program. We invite you to learn more and get involved.
You can support campus sustainability with a gift to the Sustainability Fund. Donations support energy conservation, waste reduction, carbon offsets, and education and outreach programs.
With Earth Day on April 22 and Arbor Day on April 30, the Towson University community highlighted its commitment to sustainability in multiple ways.
In early April, thousands of university and high school students around the world participated in 100 same-day events focused on how state and local action can help solve climate change by 2030.
Towson University remained committed to environmental sustainability during the COVID-19 pandemic by participating in the Campus Race to Zero Waste competition.
