UNT has been included in The Princeton Review’s “Guide to 322 Green Colleges” for the second consecutive year.
The guide recognizes institutions of higher education in the U.S. and Canada that demonstrate notable commitments to sustainability in their academic offerings, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation. The guide is released in collaboration with the U.S. Green Building Council – the organization that oversees the LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, ranking system.
Among UNT’s accomplishments:
In 2008, UNT became the first university in Texas to sign the American College and University President's Climate Commitment. Currently, UNT has completed all but two of the tangible actions outlined by the group, and achieved Silver ranking in the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System (STARS) making it the leading green university in Texas.
