Sierra Club Gives UW Top Spot

The UW moved from #4 to #1 on the Sierra Club’s 5th annual ranking of America’s ‘Coolest’ Schools. The survey questions sent to over 900 four year institutions focus on environmental goals and achievements in ten areas (energy supply, efficiency, food, academics, purchasing, transportation, waste management, administration, financial investments, and other).

Although ranked #1, there is still room for improvement as the UW still scored only an 81.5, earning an B- grade from the Sierra Club.
