DePaul Gets Greener

27 Apr

For the second year in a row, DePaul has been named in The Princeton Review’s guide to the nation’s greenest colleges. The Princeton Review’s “Guide to 311 Green Colleges” cites DePaul’s LEED Gold-certified Monsignor Andrew J. McGowan Science Building, along with student-sponsored measures, transportation initiatives, and research opportunities provided through DePaul’s environmental science major as distinguished accomplishments in making DePaul’s campuses friendlier to the environment.

At DePaul, sustainability means embracing the environmental and social challenges to building a sustainable learning community, showing “the way of wisdom” from our Catholic, Vincentian and urban mission.

This good news comes as DePaul launches its new sustainability website, which keeps the university community up to speed with accomplishments and future plans to make DePaul campuses environmentally sustainable. The new website outlines ways for students and staff to get involved in upcoming events and discussions led by campus groups dedicated to making DePaul a better, greener place.
