Keene State College puts a lot of effort into maintaining a sustainable campus. And our efforts don’t go unnoticed. For the third-straight year, the College has been listed in The Princeton Review’s Guide to 322 Green Colleges, which profiles higher-education institutions in the United States and Canada that demonstrate distinguished commitments to sustainability in their academic offerings, campus infrastructure, activities, and career preparation. KSC also received a silver rating for a recent campus-wide sustainability assessment by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).
“Sustainability is a value that Keene State College instills into everything it does as an academic institution,” said Mary Jensen, Keene State College Campus Sustainability Officer. “Faculty, staff, and students all have demonstrated their commitment to sustainability—from Ashuelot River cleanups to student research projects that help inform city governments. The most exciting part is that the College incorporates sustainability in the curriculum, operations, student life, and the College’s mission and values. It is truly a collaborative effort across campus.”
