Cal U again has earned a listing in The Princeton Review’s Guide to Green Colleges, a comprehensive directory produced annually in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council.

The directory presents “green highlights on the nation’ most eco-friendly campuses,” spotlighting colleges and universities that “demonstrate a strong commitment to sustainability in their academic offerings, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation.”

Cal U is one of 322 schools included in the directory. The University’s profile focuses on the sustainable geothermal energy used for heating and cooling Cal U residence halls, as well as the Cal U Weather Center’s participation in the G.L.O.B.E. data collection program.

In addition, the profile notes Cal U’s commitment to serving local and organic foods in its dining hall; transportation options such as free bus service and car sharing; internships and career counseling in conservation-related industries and “green” jobs; and degree programs in environmental studies. 

Cal U has been included on the directory since 2010.
