A Fond Farewell

Dear Friends,

In September 2017, we shared the news that the Smart and Sustainable Campuses Conference would take a year off in 2018.

Today, we have decided to officially discontinue the conference moving forward.

While we would love to be able to continue this event, we can take comfort in knowing there are so many other great professional development opportunities available nation-wide and across the world.    

In 2003, along with the National Wildlife Federation, the University of Maryland hosted one of the first national sustainability conferences for higher education, "Beyond Compliance: Campus Greening Through Stewardship." By 2005, the university was annually hosting the Smart and Sustainable Campuses Conference, in partnership with the U.S. EPA and other higher education associations.

We are so incredibly proud of what we were able to achieve as a conference. It is a true testament to the strength of our community.

As it is with anything that comes to an end, we know this will surely open new doors for all of us.

We hope everyone continues to stay engaged and connected.

If you care to take a trip down memory lane, we invite you to visit our conference archives.

Thank you once again for your support and your dedication to sustainability.

Sincerely,
The Smart and Sustainable Campuses Conference
