Prescott College featured in National Guide to Green Colleges
Princeton Review and U.S. Green Building Council team up to highlight nation’s most environmentally responsible colleges and universities
Prescott College is one of the most environmentally responsible colleges in the U.S. and Canada, according to The Princeton Review. The well-known education services company selected Prescott College for inclusion in the just-released second annual edition of its free downloadable book, “The Princeton Review’s Guide to 311 Green Colleges: 2011 Edition."
“College-bound students are increasingly interested in sustainability issues," said Robert Franek, Senior VP, Publishing, The Princeton Review. “Among 8,200 college applicants who participated in our spring 2011 'College Hopes & Worries Survey,' nearly 7 out of 10 (69%) said having information about a school’s commitment to the environment would influence their decision to apply to or attend the school," he added. "Together with the USGBC, we are pleased to make this free resource available to all students seeking to attend colleges that practice, teach and support environmentally-responsible choices. We highly recommend the colleges in this book."
Created by The Princeton Review in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), "The Princeton Review's Guide to 311 Green Colleges” is, according to Princeton Review sources, the only free, comprehensive guidebook profiling institutions of higher education that demonstrate a notable commitment to sustainability in their academic offerings, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation. The Princeton Review chose the schools for this guide based on a survey of administrators at hundreds of colleges that the Company polled in 2010 about their school's sustainability initiatives.
