GENESEO, N.Y. – SUNY Geneseo has been recognized for its efforts in environmental sustainability in the 2014 edition of “The Princeton Review’s Guide to 332 Green Colleges.”

The guide cites SUNY Geneseo's commitment to "thinking Geneseo green," including the work of its Environmental Impact and Sustainability Task Force, introducing the Geneseo Public Bus Service and promoting "Geneseo Gives Back," a waste diversion program that keeps an estimated 15 tons of materials from landfills at the end of each academic year.

“SUNY campuses across the state are among the most energy-smart in the nation, a leadership role that we continue to build upon through the expanded use of green technologies and sustainability initiatives,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. “Congratulations to SUNY Geneseo and all 10 SUNY campuses to be included in the '2014 Guide to Green Colleges.' This recognition is much deserved and highly commendable.”

"The Princeton Review’s Guide to 332 Green Colleges" profiles 330 institutions of higher education in the United States and two in Canada that demonstrate a strong commitment to sustainability in their academic offerings, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation.
