NYU Rises 14 Spots to No. 29 on The Princeton Review’s Top 50 Green Colleges List

Moving from 43 to 29

New York University ranked 29th on The Princeton Review’s 2022 Edition of the Top 50 Green Colleges. The university rose 14 places from last year, reflecting deep commitments to implementing sustainability in all aspects of operations from greener facilities and practices to substantive research being done by faculty and students.

Nearly 840 institutions were evaluated, including 420 that were given the designation of Green Colleges. The Princeton Review uses a combination of school-reported data and student opinions to rank institutions, considering many factors like quality of life on campus, the ability of students and faculty to lead healthy and sustainable lives, how well students are prepared to work in  an increasingly green economy, and how sustainable school policies are, among others. 

Additionally, students are surveyed about the influence of sustainability on their education, administrative support regarding sustainability, and visibility of environmental organizations on campus. 

NYU is working toward a number of goals, including achieving carbon neutrality by 2040 and supporting sustainable teaching and learning throughout the institution.
