Colleges across America are making sustainability a priority both in their academic offerings and their campus life. Institutions are doing everything from collecting fryer oil to use in campus vehicles to expanding environmental studies programs.
The Princeton Review rated almost 700 colleges and universities from around the country based on their commitment to environmental issues. Institutions were graded on a scale of 60 to 99. The 15 schools in the following slideshow were all awarded a perfect score of 99. The ratings are based on 2008 amd 2009 school data on environmentally related policies, practices and academic offerings.
