How Green Is My Campus?

Inside Higher Ed points today to something called “College Sustainability Report Card 2011” which offers web “green” grades for various universities and colleges, including the UCs below. The folks behind the ratings tend to downgrade UCs for having foundations with investments that are not specifically green. The foundation trustees, I am sure, would argue that they are pursuing another type of green. Anyway, the ratings with some explanation are at the web addresses below.

The folks behind the ratings are at the “Sustainable Endowments Institute.” It describes itself as follows:

Founded in 2005, the Institute is a special project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. The work of the Institute is guided by a diverse and knowledgeable 11-member board of advisors with expertise in many aspects of higher education, sustainability, governance, and endowment policy.
