37 Green Indoctrinators

, Bethany Stotts, Leave a comment

My column today discusses how, according to The Princeton Review’s Guide to 286 Green Colleges, the 37 colleges and universities listed below have an “environmental literacy requirement” for all students.

In the dorms, student groups enforce “green” behavior such as reducing one’s carbon footprint. “[The University of Maine’s] new student orientation includes sustainability programming, and Eco Reps in residence halls coordinate recycling programs and lead other environmental initiatives,” states the guide. At the University of Northern Iowa, “UNI Energy! is a student organization that energizes students in residence halls to calculate their carbon footprint and commit to reducing it,” it states.

My alma mater, Messiah College, makes it into the 286 Green Colleges list, but does not have a mandatory curriculum component.
