US Colleges Teach America How To Build A Clean Energy Future

Climate issues are clearly important to today’s college students – in a 2013 Princeton Review survey, 62% of all college applicants said a school’s commitment to the environment would influence their decision to apply or attend the school, and students have begun fossil fuel divestment movements at more than 300 colleges.

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise then that the heads of America’s colleges and universities are listening to their constituents and leading some of the most significant efforts today to transition to a sustainable future through the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC).
