UofL makes Sierra Club list five years in a row

by Denise Fitzpatrick, communications and marketing last modified Aug 23, 2013 02:19 PM

UofL has made The Sierra Club’s “Cool Schools” list for the fifth year in a row.

The club scores and ranks the nation’s greenest colleges and universities based on their answers to questions about energy use and efficiency, waste management, food and other areas of sustainability.

“Our energetic, enthusiastic students and faculty are helping UofL stand out as a leader in green thinking and issues,” said David Simpson, urban studies professor and chair of the university’s Sustainability Council. “We are becoming known as a place to pursue these ideas and put them into action.”

The Sierra Club also featured one of those enthusiastic students, Angie Carlson, in its Aug. 14 magazine. Carlson is an active member of the volunteer Solid Waste Reduction Committee and part of the EcoRep program.
