Case Western Reserve Named to Princeton Review's 286 Green Colleges Guide

Case Western Reserve University's ongoing commitment to sustainability is being recognized with a spot in The Princeton Review's Guide to 286 Green Colleges.

The announcement, made this week, coincides with the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.

"We recognize that there is a rising interest among students in attending colleges that practice, teach, and support environmentally responsible choices," wrote the Princeton Review editors. They point out that in Princeton Review's 2009 College Hopes & Worries Survey, 64 percent of college applicants and parents indicated a desire to know more about colleges' environmental commitments.

The guide cites Case Western Reserve's signing on to the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment; the creation of the Great Lakes Energy Institute; the school's sustainability committee; LEED-certified construction projects; and more.

The Princeton Review partnered with the United States Green Building Council to produce the guide, which is available online.
