University Listed in Guide to Green Colleges

UNC Charlotte is listed in the seventh annual edition of Princeton Review’s "green guide," which features the 361 most environmentally responsible colleges in the nation.

The University’s continued excellence as the region’s premiere urban research institution, its commitment to build all future building projects to LEED design standards and the successful implementation of a zero-waste initiative factored into this designation.

Tyler Sytsma, the University’s sustainability coordinator, stated, "Many of our students come to college wanting to make a positive impact in the world, and it is our responsibility as a University to give them the tools and infrastructure they need to make that impact."

Foxx Kicks Off Tour of Light Rail on Campus

Greeted by Chancellor Philip L. Dubois, U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx kicked off a tour of development along the LYNX Blue Line Extension during a stop at the UNC Charlotte Main Station on Tuesday, Oct. 25.

The purpose of the tour is to highlight investment along the light rail line and to portray mass transit as a key strategy to increase accessibility and to reduce poverty and segregation.

When the main UNC Charlotte campus was being developed in the 1960s, Dubois said, no one thought it was essential for the University to be closely connected to the city. "This has all changed," he said. "We know now that you need to be part of the fabric of the community you serve. We have taken many steps to ensure we are more closely linked."
