For the 11th year in a row, Grand Valley State University has been named one of the country’s most environmentally responsible colleges by The Princeton Review. 

The university is included in “The Princeton Review Guide to Green Colleges: 2021 Edition.”

The guide profiles higher education institutions in the U.S. that demonstrate superb sustainability practices, a strong foundation in sustainability education and a healthy quality of life for students on campus. Grand Valley has been included in the guide every year since the first issue was published in 2010.

“This acknowledgment recognizes the hard work of faculty, staff and students across the university to collectively honor our commitment to sustainability,” said Yumiko Jakobcic, Office of Sustainability Practices director.

In September, Grand Valley was also named one of the country's greenest universities by Sierra Club, the largest national grassroots environmental organization in the U.S.
