Higher Education in Maryland

College of Southern Maryland Green Initiatives

Energy conservation measures at the College of Southern Maryland are increasing. An energy audit has been completed on several of the buildings, with the results to be used to implement additional energy saving measures. Motion Activated Light Sensors have been installed at the College of Southern Maryland's classrooms and restrooms on the La Plata and Leonardtown campuses. As an individual enters a room, the lights will automatically illuminate. When there is no motion or sound for 20 minutes, the lights will turn off. Also, boilers at the Leonardtown and La Plata campuses are being modified to help reduce oil consumption, and new thermostats are being installed as part of energy reduction efforts.

Volunteer Southern Maryland located on the La Plata Campus is collecting retired cell phones to recycle them and preserve the environment. The cellular contribution program sends functioning cell phones to humanitarian organizations.
