GREEN COLLEGES: ISU And Central Listed |
Title (Max 100 Characters)
Six Iowa institutions have been chosen as the most “green” colleges in the nation by The Princeton Review in their annual publication, “The Princeton Review’s Guide to 322 Green Colleges: 2013 Edition.”
Central College, Iowa State University, Luther College, Maharishi University of Management, University of Iowa and University of Northern Iowa were all selected.
“This national recognition—which takes into account many aspects of our commitment to campus sustainability, but even more importantly, cites our national leadership in incorporating sustainability education across our curriculum as a graduation core requirement and in the form of our new interdisciplinary minor in global sustainability—is a strong vote of confidence in a key aspect of our institutional mission and goals,” said Central’s Jim Zaffiro, professor of political science.
“Sustainability remains a core value of the college and a signature initiative for our future,” said Mark Putnam, Central president. “This recognition reinforces the importance of our commitments and keeping our promises for the future.”
