Green Accolades for GMC

Green Mountain College made Sierra magazine’s list of top ten environmental colleges and received a perfect sustainability score in the Best 378 Colleges guidebook released by the Princeton Review last month.

The Princeton Review tallied scores of 832 higher education institutions based on environmentally related practices, policies and academic offerings on a scale of 60 to 99. Only 22 colleges nationwide received a perfect score. It was the second year in a row that GMC has made the Princeton Review’s Green Honor Roll, and the third time in four years the College has made Sierra’s top ten.

"Green Mountain’s strategic plan, Sustainability 2020, keeps us on the cutting edge of sustainability in academic programs and operations," said Aaron Witham, Green Mountain College’s sustainability coordinator. “Our students, staff, and faculty are always thinking about how to push us into the next frontier, whether it’s through our recent divestment from fossil fuels in our endowment, our new Renewable Energy and Ecological design bachelors program or our low residency masters in Sustainable Food Systems.”
