The UW was ranked second in the country by Sierra Magazine for the University's sustainability efforts, and it was also named to the 2010 Green Rating Honor Roll by the Princeton Review.

Sierra Magazine, the official publication of the Sierra Club, judged each institution on eight factors: efficiency, energy, food, academics, purchasing, transportation, waste management and administration. The UW achieved a score of 98 out of 100 points, moving up from ninth place last year. For more information on the Sierra rankings, click here.

The Princeton Review rankings cover three broad areas: the campus quality of life for students (whether it is healthy and sustainable), educational preparation for meeting environmental challenges, and the university's overall commitment to environmental issues. Only 15 institutions were selected for the honor roll from among 697 that completed a survey. The UW received the highest possible score under the Review's rating system.
