CWRU has made the 2014 Princeton Review Green Colleges list as well as the 2014 Sierra Club Cool Schools list of sustainable colleges. CWRU joins 331 other universities and colleges in being recognized for our sustainability efforts by the Princeton Review, and has ranked 78th in the world on the Sierra Club Cool Schools list. Released in April of 2014, the Princeton Review looks at factors like academic integration of
sustainability, career-minded presentation of sustainability topics, as well as green buildings of campus, using LEED standards as a guide. The Sierra Club Cool Schools list is made by offering universities and colleges a questionnaire, based closely on the Sustainability Tracking Assessment and Rating System (STARS) standards for integrating sustainability into Universities. The Office for Sustainability is proud and grateful to have made these lists once again, and look forward to making great improvements and strides throughout the university to help us improve our rankings in these reports, and more importantly, further integrate sustainability into the CWRU campus and reduce our climate footprint.
