Particularly with liberal arts colleges, we look to see that the college is a strong fit, where you will be in the mainstream of the student body. Find a college that inspires you, not just one with a big name. Generally, the deeper green the college curriculum and ethos, the greener and more sustainable the rest of it's policies will be. Of course, investments count, recycling counts, transportation policies count, but you are going to college for an education and to change the world, not for sustainable administrative policies. We choose colleges and universities that walk the talk, but the primary and most essential component is the education, and that's what we evaluate first.
For several years, we worked with a carefully chosen advisory board consisting of college advisors, educators and administrators from non-profit organizations to oversee the choices and decision making process.
Do you believe a college can be ranked top green when 47% of it's graduates go into investment banking? We don't! Should a college be ranked highly even if it doesn't have a strong environmental major? Our thinking is broader our research is deeper than that - because it comes from a long held commitment to healing life on our mother Earth. Simply put, no one has investigated as long, or has more knowledge of green colleges longer than us.
Our colleges are for YOU, the hope of the future, because you want your life to count. Because you to make a significant difference whether protecting endangered species, working for human rights, becoming a green urban planner, developing greener fuels, making policy, promoting peace or international health, being a teacher or an eco-entrepreneur, or helping corporations become sustainable and attend to the "triple bottom line" of "people, planet, profit.'
