UGA is one of six Georgia colleges and universities listed in The Princeton Review’s Guide to 286 Green Colleges.  In recognizing UGA, the guide noted the university’s Academy of the Environment, which is a venue for cross-disciplinary collaboration in research, teaching, and outreach that includes 300 faculty members, and the UGA’s “Every Drop Counts” water conservation campaign, which resulted in a 22 percent drop in water usage on campus.

It also noted that UGA is home to the Eugene Odum School of Ecology, the world’s first stand-alone school devoted to teaching, research and public service in the areas of ecology and environmental studies.

Developed by The Princeton Review in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council, the guide is the first free comprehensive listing of institutions of higher education that have demonstrated an above-average commitment to sustainability in terms of campus infrastructure, activities and initiatives.

Other Georgia schools on the list include Georgia Tech, Emory University, Agnes Scott College, LaGrange College and Wesleyan College.
