Simmons Featured in Princeton Review's 2010 Guidebook for Commitment to Sustainability
BOSTON (May 24, 2010) — Simmons College has been included in the 2010 "Princeton Review's Guide to 286 Green Colleges," a recently published guidebook that features a select group of universities that have demonstrated a significant commitment to sustainability.
The guide was created in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council, the nation's leading nonprofit committed to a prosperous and sustainable future for buildings and communities.
In their summary of Simmons, Princeton Review editors said "Projects like RecycleMania, the Switch Your Bulb (to the more efficient compact fluorescents) program, and the annual Project Move Out (when students vacate the dorms and distribute unwanted items to local shelters and nonprofits) are examples of the school's initial strides toward creating a more sustainable campus." They also cited the school's environmental studies department for its hands-on approach to learning. Click here to learn more about Green Simmons.
Simmons was included in the guidebook because of its high score (90 out of 99) in the 2009 Princeton Review green rating, where the college was recognized for its recent work integrating energy conservation into facilities and operations, and the opening of its School of Management and Academic building, which is Gold LEED certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.
Founded in 1899, Simmons College is a nationally recognized university located in the heart of Boston. It includes an undergraduate college for women, and graduate programs for women and men in management, social work, health sciences, and library and information science.
