The Princeton Review Guide: 2016 Green College Recognition

As of Novemeber 8th, 2016, we have been recognized by The Princeton Review Guide as a Green College and University in the United States.

The Princeton Review Guide tallies the amount of sustainability institutional data obtained from colleges. The green system rating considers the percentage of sustainable  food expenditures, transportation program for students and faculty members, sustainability committee that’s devoted to advance sustainability issues and programs on campus and the schools overall waste diversion rate.

Since last year’s review, our efforts for sustainability has increased drastically. This year RU’s most recognizable accomplishment is our waste diversion percentage has increased from 23% in 2015 to 34% in 2016. That’s an increase by 11% within a year. We have available transportation programs for all students and faculty, our food budget that’s spent on local/organic food is 20%. Lastly, the programs offered at Roosevelt to get students and faculty involved in campus sustainability such as the Environmental Sustainable Committee that dedicates its efforts in the development of sustainability at Roosevelt.
