The Greenest Colleges & Universities Nation Wide.

Sierra magazine Coolest Schools ranking is open to all four year undergraduate colleges and universities in the United States. The voluntary survey called the Campus Sustainability Data Collector was the result of the collaboration of four organizations:

  • Sierra Club
  • Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE)
  • Sustainable Endowments Institute (SEI)
  • Princeton Review

For ranking the schools had to fill the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS) survey that incorporated a point system with the maximum number of points achievable at 894.5.  The points were broken out into eleven categories:

  • Co-curricular                 69.00
  • Education/Research       51.50
  • Energy                       205.00
  • Transport                     86.00
  • Waste                         97.00
  • Water                        111.00
  • Purchasing                   41.00
  • Food                           55.50
  • Planning                      79.50
  • Investing                     64.00
  • Innovation                   35.00

Out of the 96 schools the participated the highest score achieved was 709.17.

David,

You provided some wonderful information. In Europe students have been serious about sustainability for years. In order for our world to change for the better, this is an area that can make a difference.

What a great source of information you provided!!!
