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."
