Dahlgren Campus Named a Virginia Green Facility

(Copyright Patrick Ross Photography, 2012)

The Virginia Tourism Corporation has named UMW’s Dahlgren Campus Center for Education and Research a Virginia Green Conference Center.

Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of Virginia’s tourism industry. Virginia Green Conference Centers have been thoughtfully planned and designed to minimize their impacts on the environment. The Dahlgren campus has met the established “core activities” for Green Conference Centers in the areas of recycling, minimization of disposable food service products, solid waste reduction, water conservation, energy conservation and “green” events.

The Stafford campus and the Jepson Alumni Executive Center also are recognized as Virginia Green facilities.
