Mechanical Engineering Department Named Green Office

The Mechanical Engineering Department earned GOLD certification as a Green Office from George Mason University's Office of Sustainability. Participation in this program aims to raise awareness of faculty, staff and students in the Volgenau of School of Engineering, of modest changes they can make in the work patterns and lifestyles that will have a positive effect on their office environment.

"The Green Office program provides a scalable model that can be replicated anywhere on campus, and we hope this recognition will encourage future adoptions in the Volgenau School of Engineering,' said Colin Reagle, assistant profession in the school's Mechanical Engineering Department.  "This contribution to sustainability aligns with the engineering charge to use the principles of science to better humanity,"
