St. Mary’s College of Maryland’s Green Revolving Fund is highlighted in the March/April edition of Facilities Manager magazine. Using information submitted by Bradley Newkirk, environmental health and safety coordinator at St. Mary’s College, the article details the Green St Mary’s Revolving Fund which was established in 2010 by SMCM students.

GSMRF is funded by annual student fees ($25 per student) and aims to finance on-campus green projects that demonstrate a quantifiable return on investment and fiscal responsibility. Since its creation, numerous green projects have been funded, including the installation of energy efficient heat pumps in the townhouses saving the College approximately $40,972 on electricity bills each year.
