Millersville University is once again featured in the Princeton Review’s Guide to Green Colleges! The Princeton Review has compiled its list of sustainable schools online since 2010, and Millersville University has been included in the list for the eighth year in a row.
The company is known for its admissions and educational resources for students and its college rankings lists. The annual Guide to Green Colleges focuses on showcasing schools with a strong commitment to the environment.
The Princeton Review surveys a total of 710 schools from around the globe, and this year it chose the top 455 based on several factors, including each institution’s sustainability-related policies, practices and programs.
Millersville University strives to create sustainable spaces, experiences and learning opportunities, both on campus and in the Millersville community. The Office of Sustainability provides support to Millersville’s faculty, staff and students to help plan, implement and promote University sustainability projects. The office also helps coordinate various activities related to sustainability groups and clubs.
In addition to its regular inclusion in the Guide to Green Colleges, the University has been recognized and awarded several times for its commitment to a sustainable campus, including an Excellence and Innovation in Sustainability and Sustainable Development Award from the American Association of State Colleges and Universities.
Additionally, the Lombardo Welcome Center at MU is the first building in Pennsylvania to be certified as a zero-energy building, producing its own energy onsite through renewable energy sources. The building and other sustainability efforts are a part of the University’s goal to be carbon-neutral by 2040.
