Has the institution adopted sustainability policies or guidelines for food service franchisees operating on campus?:

A brief description of the guidelines for franchisees:

Dining Services, the Adele H. Stamp Student Union, and the Office of Sustainability collaborated to implement a post-consumer composting program at the food court in the Stamp Student Union. During the program initiation, waste sorting and management training was provided to all franchisees. Franchisees have all received training regarding recycling and composting, as well as the overall campus sustainability and waste diversion goals. Additionally, the University of Maryland continues to work with current vendors to encourage them to utilize environmentally friendly packaging.
