Learning Green, Living Green

Sustainability at FSU

On Sept. 15, 2007, Frostburg State University officially became a charter member of the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment (ACUPCC). This commitment provides framework and support for American colleges and universities to eventually go climate neutral. FSU understands that promoting environmental sustainability must happen at the college and university level.
