Creighton Recognized for Sustainability Efforts

The Princeton Review listed Creighton University as one of 322 colleges with a strong commitment to the environment and sustainability in the U.S. and Canada in it's "Princeton Review's Guide to 322 Green Colleges." Creighton is the only school listed from Nebraska.

The schools were selected for the guide based on results from an annually conducted survey of administrators at hundreds of four-year colleges. The Review analyzed data about the schools' course offerings and the environmental and sustainability-related policies and practices. To be featured in the guide, schools earned a score of 83 or above on the criteria.

The Review has been publishing this guide for five years as a resource for college applications that focuses solely on colleges that show a strong commitment to the environment and sustainability. The guide is published in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council's Center for Green Schools. More than 832 schools were reviewed.
