UNH was once again selected to The Princeton Review’s Green College Honor Roll for 2022, marking the 14th consecutive year that the university has achieved such status.
UNH was one of 27 schools to have made the list, which recognizes those schools that receive a score of 99 – the highest possible mark – in The Princeton Review’s Green Rating tallies each year. According to The Princeton Review, it tallied Green Rating scores for 835 colleges this year.
“We're proud of our UNH community's incredible collaborative efforts and are honored to be recognized for this work contributing to critical solutions for today's crises,” says Fiona Wilson, deputy chief sustainability officer and director of UNH’s Sustainability Institute. “There’s no question that universities will play a pivotal role in shaping a sustainable future for humanity - particularly public universities like UNH that have been committed to the public good since its founding over 150 years ago. That role is twofold, helping to create vital new knowledge and contribute that knowledge and needed resources to the communities around them, and to inspire, educate and support the leaders of tomorrow.”
The announcement comes on the heels of UNH having been recognized for its sustainability efforts by the Sierra Club, as well, which ranked UNH ninth among the Top 20 Coolest Schools of 2021 after considering submissions from a record 328 schools across the United States and Canada.
UNH was also ranked among the Top 20 Coolest Schools in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
