Cool Campuses

The Sierra Club has compiled its list of "cool schools" — the college campuses with the greatest commitment to sustainability. The environmental organization surveyed higher-education institutions in eight categories: efficiency, energy, food, academics, purchasing, transportation, waste management and administration. The results were published in the September/October 2009 issue of Sierra magazine.
