Efforts to be environmentally responsible and increase sustainability efforts on campus have resulted in Illinois State’s inclusion in The Princeton Review’s Guide to 311 Green Colleges: 2011 Edition.

The guide profiles colleges and universities that demonstrate a notable commitment to sustainability in their academic offerings, campus infrastructure, activities, and career preparation.

Illinois State’s energy conservation and alternative transportation initiatives, recycling program, and wellness and environmental programming are highlighted in the guide. The University’s Center for Renewable Energy and its interdisciplinary renewable energy major are also prominently mentioned.

The Princeton Review chose 311 schools based on a survey it conducted in 2010 of hundreds of colleges across the U.S. and Canada. The guide can be downloaded at www.princetonreview.com/green-guide.aspx.
