Grand Valley Ranked 16th Globally for Sustainability
Date: January 3, 2012
Grand Valley State University ranked 16th for sustainable practices in an international survey called the GreenMetric World University Ranking.
The ranking system was developed by faculty members from Universitas Indonesia and allows universities throughout the world to compare their efforts in sustainability and environment-friendly university management. The system also allows universities in developing countries to evaluate how sustainable they are compared to universities in developed countries.
“Our efforts continue to shine, and now on a global scale,” said Norman Christopher, director of the Sustainable Community Development Initiative. “This new recognition can be a platform for many new discussions, such as our partnerships with international universities where our students travel to study.”
