ASU makes Kaplan list of top 25 green colleges

Today's students are going green and the move towards a sustainable future is impacting many of their decisions, including college and career choices. In recognition of this movement, Kaplan, a provider of education services for more than 70 years, has focused its new Kaplan College Guide 2009 for the first time on environmentally responsible schools and green careers.

The guide, released this week, rates 25 of the top green private and public colleges from across the nation. Arizona State University makes the list, which also includes:

Kaplan reviewed a range of criteria to formulate its list of 25 green schools. Specific areas examined include: environmentally responsible campus projects; initiatives and courses offered; organizations and student groups on campus; and achievements noted in the Sustainable Endowments Institute’s College Sustainability Report Card 2008.

The list highlights schools whose efforts reflect a commitment to long-term sustainability and to encouraging students to make better choices.
