SALSIBURY, Md. - Salisbury University has been named one of the nation's most environmentally responsible colleges by The Princeton Review, in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

The University is featured in the Guide to 375 Green Colleges, which highlights impressive environmental and sustainability programs at campuses throughout the United States and select institutions in Canada.

The guide is based on a survey of hundreds of colleges nationwide. Questions explore institutional commitment to areas including LEED building certifications, environmental studies programs, alternative transportation, recycling and conservation programs, and more.

The Campus has continued its green initiative for the 2017-2018 school year, opening its new solar panel canopy in the faculty parking lot, which is able to power three dorm buildings.

"We put this is their educational curricula and we put hands on, surround them with things we're doing so they can see it, live it," said Wayne Shelton, Director of Campus Sustainability and Environmental Safety.

Shelton says the university has many long-term goals including developing plans to reach a goal for climate neutrality by the year 2050.
