Number one. That’s the spot Lewis & Clark earned in The Princeton Review’s ranking of the 353 most environmentally responsible colleges and universities.
“This honor is validation of the progress we make when we work together in common purpose,” said Lewis & Clark President Barry Glassner. “Throughout our three schools, from our facilities to our academic offerings—including our top-ranked program in environmental law—we integrate research, learning, and action. At Lewis & Clark, we’re always building on our strengths.”
Princeton Review, the education services company known for its test prep and tutoring services, books, and college rankings features, tallied the scores for 861 colleges this year. They used data from their 2013-14 institutional survey, as well as student surveys that asked about each school’s sustainability-related practices, policies, and academic offerings. Results included student ratings of how sustainability issues influenced their education and life on campus, administration and student support for environmental awareness and conservation efforts, and the visibility and impact of student environmental groups.
