The Princeton Review recently named Case Western Reserve University as one of the 353 most environmentally responsible colleges of 2015 in its sixth annual “Guide to Green Colleges.” Case Western Reserve’s Office for Sustainability reported more than 25 criteria on sustainability-related policies, practices and programs that were weighed in the assessment.
“We are so pleased to have the university be selected for the Green Guide again this year,” Stephanie Corbett, director of sustainability, said. “We are always striving to deepen our sustainability efforts and these rankings help showcase work by many individuals and departments.”
Case Western Reserve could benefit from being listed among other green schools in the guide, as The Princeton Review finds that more than 60 percent of teens looking for colleges care about their potential alma mater’s commitment to the environment.
The profiles in the “Guide to Green Colleges” provide information about each school’s admission requirements, cost and financial aid, and student body stats. Also included are “Green Facts” about the schools with details on the availability of green transportation alternatives at the schools and the percentage of the school food budgets spent on local/organic food.
