"It has been quite rewarding to continue to receive this recognition for our work because it solidifies the fact that everyone’s collective efforts are making a big impact," said Yumiko Jakobcic, director of the Office of Sustainability Practices. "This acknowledgement reflects Grand Valley’s continued commitment to sustainability."

Grand Valley was also placed in the top 40 of the country's greenest universities by the Sierra Club, the largest national grassroots environmental organization in the U.S.
