UCSB Continues On a Green Path
UC Santa Barbara has been named one of the top “green universities” in the nation by U.S. News & World Report
UCSB was listed as the 13th most environmentally responsible campus in the country. The methodology used to come up with the rankings included whether students on campus had a lifestyle that was both healthy and sustainable; how well a school is preparing students for an increasingly green economy; and how environmentally responsible the school’s policies are.
Only UC Santa Cruz finished higher among UC campuses in the rankings. Part of the rankings depended on student surveys of environmental education and policies on campus. More than 700 schools were studied with rankings given the top 50.
