Sustainability Office Certfied in first Cohort!

CSN Chesapeake Urban Stormwater Professionals

UMBC's Sustainbility Office was invited to participate in the Chesapeake Stormwater Network's (CSN) first cohort for the Chesapeake Urban Stormwater Professionals (CUSP) program. Our Sustainability Coordinator, Claire Runquist, and our Director, Ryan Kmetz, both earned the certification. The Sustainability Office encourages any interested students, faculty, or staff to reach out to them to learn more about the program and how then can apply to the next cohort. 

About Chesapeake Urban Stormwater Professionals (CUSP) Program
CUSP is a free, new professional training program from the Chesapeake Stormwater Network! The core of the program is a 14-part webcast “curriculum” that introduces the basic impacts of stormwater runoff and how they can be reduced or mitigated by stormwater and urban watershed restoration practices. These “basics” are an important prerequisite for many environmental jobs in our network but are seldom taught in most undergraduate or graduate programs.
