Atlanta, GA -A comprehensive survey released on Earth Day by The Building Green Initiative (BGI) at Clark Atlanta University says historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) are driving energy efficiency on their campuses and promoting sustainability through their policies, practices and curriculums.

The survey ranked the nation’s most eco-friendly HBCUs and found the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) and Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University were the top green campuses among public institutions, while Spelman College and Howard University topped the list for private schools, BGI director, Felicia Davis announced today.

“Black colleges are going green,” said Davis. “This survey provides a clear picture of the wide-ranging activities underway at HBCUs to generate renewable energy, build to LEED Gold Certification standards and engage students in green initiatives, ecological curriculum and sustainable lifestyles.”

Rankings were determined by analyzing responses from 43 participating HBCUs in the areas of administration, energy efficiency, green building, recycling, renewable energy generation, food, transportation, purchasing, and student involvement.
