Ithaca College was once again named to the Princeton Review’s “Guide to Green Colleges,” a list of the most environmentally sustainable colleges.
This year’s guide features 416 schools, which were selected based on a survey of administrators at 695 colleges. The administrators were asked about their institutions' sustainability-related policies, practices, and programs. Survey topics ranged from academic offerings and campus initiatives to career preparation for "green jobs.”
Each school is given a Green Rating on a scale of 60 to 99. Institutions with a score above 80 make it onto the list. This year, IC was given a Green Rating of 98/99, with the guide citing the College’s sustainability initiatives and Gold Star rating from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).
