Le Moyne College has been recognized by The Princeton Review as one of the nation’s most environmentally responsible higher educational institutions, according to The Princeton Review’s 2021 Guide to Green Colleges.
This year’s list profiles 416 green colleges. The Princeton Review chose the colleges and universities based on its 2019-20 sustainability survey of administrators and students at 695 institutions. Topics in the survey ranged from academic offerings and campus initiatives to career preparation for green jobs.
"We are especially pleased to recommend these colleges during Campus Sustainability Month, the international celebration of sustainability in higher education," said Rob Franek, editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review. "With robust offerings in environmental studies and initiatives that range from solar-powered residence halls to tray-less dining halls, these schools demonstrate their commitment to sustainability in a range of innovative ways. We recommend them highly to all students seeking to learn and live at a green college."
More than 25 survey data points were analyzed by The Princeton Review editors to tally Green Rating scores for the schools on a scale of 60 to 99. Colleges that earned a Green Rating of 80 or higher made it into the guide. Of the 416 schools in the 2021 edition, 393 are in the United States, 22 are in Canada and one is in Greece. (The 416 schools are listed alphabetically in the guide and not ranked overall from 1 to 416.)
