UConn has once again been rated among the nation’s greenest schools in the Sierra Club’s annual “Cool Schools” rankings, which evaluate universities for their environmental sustainability. This year, UConn ranks #8, and maintains prominence as one of the world’s most sustainable campuses.
The Sierra Club rankings are determined using data collected by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) STARS self-reporting tool. Those results are reported in the 2020 Sustainable Campus Index. The Sierra Club then applies additional environmental criteria to arrive at its final rankings.
