GENESEO, N.Y. -- The State University of New York at Geneseo has been named among the most environmentally responsible colleges in the United States and Canada by “The Princeton Review.”
Geneseo is included in the organization’s newly released 2017 edition of “The Princeton Review’s Guide to 375 Green Colleges.” The college has consistently been included in the annual guide since it was first published in 2010.
The Princeton Review guide compiles data from the company’s 2016-17 survey of 629 college administrators concerning commitments to the environment and sustainability, asking them to report on their school’s sustainability-related policies, practices and programs.
Geneseo has had a long-standing commitment to sustainability. Geneseo's President’s Commission on Sustainability is one of two presidential commissions on campus (along with the Diversity Commission). The commission was established in 2012 and the college formed the Office of Sustainability in 2014. Students, staff, faculty and alumni are involved consistently in a variety of sustainability initiatives, and the college recently developed an interactive storytelling map for the exploration of how the college and alumni are leading sustainability efforts on campus and throughout the world. The college is a participant of the United Nations Global Compact, which addresses 17 goals related to sustainability and was developed by private enterprise and organization leaders throughout the world.
