We appreciate your interest in UM's sustainability and always welcome comments and feedback!


Many individuals, departments, and program across campus contribute to our collective sustainability accomplishments. Our 2019 report will be ready soon with lots of good updates on UM sustainability efforts.


Move Out week means a lot of things: the end of finals, commencement, graduation parties, summer jobs...and LOTS of unwanted books, clothes, school supplies, ramen packets, and small appliances as students vacate their rooms and leave for the summer. To avoid sending this stuff to the landfill, the UM Office of Sustainability, recycling program, and UM Housing partner to collect, sort, and sell these items.

This event is almost entirely staffed by volunteers, so WE NEED YOU! Volunteers supervise the collection sites (4 on-campus locations close to residence halls), sort collected items to prepare for the sale, and work on the day of the sale. Collection days will be Thurs, May 2, Friday, May 3, and Saturday, May 4. The Campus Thrift sale will take place on Tuesday, May 7, 9am-2pm in Schreiber Gym.
