HSU Among Nation’s Greenest Colleges

Humboldt State University is once again rated among the most environmentally responsible colleges in the U.S. and Canada by the Princeton Review, an education services company, in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council.

HSU has been listed as a Green College several times, most recently in 2015.

Humboldt State is recognized in the downloadable book, The Princeton Review’s Guide to 361 Green Colleges: 2016 Edition.

The Princeton Review’s Guide to 361 Green Colleges is designed to aid prospective college students and their families in researching institutions that demonstrate “a strong commitment to sustainability in their academic offerings, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation.”

As a long-time green campus, Humboldt State incorporates sustainability across a broad series of academic and service learning disciplines, coupled with many student volunteer programs. In its 2015 Strategic Plan, HSU calls for the University community to “Serve as effective stewards of the natural and built environment and the university’s resources with a focus on sustainability.”

Other campus sustainability efforts highlight student ingenuity, like the student-led Campus Center for Appropriate Technology and the Humboldt Energy Independence Fund, which supports student-designed energy-efficiency upgrades across campus.
