The latest addition to a growing list of accolades for excellence at the College of Staten Island is the institution’s inclusion in The Princeton Review’s 2021 Guide to Green Schools.

The methodology for the selection, according to The Princeton Review, is as follows:

This rating, on a scale of 60–99, provides a comprehensive measure of a school’s performance as an environmentally aware and prepared institution. Specifically, it includes:

  1. whether students have a campus quality of life that is both healthy and sustainable;
  2. how well a school is preparing students for employment in the clean-energy economy of the 21st century as well as for citizenship in a world now defined by environmental concerns and opportunities; and
  3. how environmentally responsible a school’s policies are.

We tallied Green Rating scores for 695 colleges this year. You can find these ratings in the profiles for those schools on our site, and in the 2021 editions of our books The Best 386 Colleges and The Complete Book of Colleges.

More information on the selection process is available on The Princeton Review’s Website.
