UGA ranks among country’s most environmentally responsible colleges

UGA is one of the country’s most environmentally responsible colleges, according to The Princeton Review, and was recently featured in the publication’s Guide to 286 Green Colleges.

The guide specifically noted UGA’s Academy of the Environment, a venue for cross-disciplinary collaboration in research, graduate and undergraduate training, and public education and outreach that includes 300 faculty members. The “Every Drop Counts” campaign, which resulted in a 22 percent drop in water usage on campus, was highlighted as was the fact that UGA is home to the Eugene Odum School of Ecology, the world’s first stand-alone school devoted to teaching, research and public service in the areas of ecology and environmental studies.
