Green guide lists Wheaton for sustainability efforts

Guide to Green CollegesWheaton is one of 286 U.S. colleges and universities highlighted in the Princeton Review’s Guide to 286 Green Colleges. The guidebook, which was created in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council, lists colleges that have “demonstrated an exemplary commitment to sustainability.”

Schools are selected for inclusion in the guide based on how well they perform in three major areas, including: whether the students have a healthy and sustainable campus life; how well a school is preparing its students for green jobs and for citizenship in a world defined by environmental concerns and opportunities; and how environmentally responsible a school’s policies are.
