An ongoing commitment to sustainability is something we take to heart here at UR. We’re consistently striving to offer opportunities for our community to become involved in environmental initiatives, so we’re exceptionally proud when national organizations — like the Princeton Review — recognize us time and again for our efforts.

For the ninth consecutive year, UR is included in the 2018 “Guide to 399 Green Colleges” edition. Projects like Spider Solar, which positions us as the first higher ed institution in the Southeast to match 100 percent of electricity needs with solar energy, contribute to our “green” rankings.

“UR is deepening its environmental commitment, including Rethink Waste’s bold landfill diversion goals, the creation of an Eco-Corridor, the development of our first campus-wide sustainability plan, and our large-scale renewable energy project,” Sustainability Director Rob Andrejewski said.

We’re proud to once again be recognized for our affinity for being “green”!
