Notre Dame College Sustainability: Irish Get a B- for the Year


Each year, I like to check all of the national metrics involving progressive standards for the University. Recently, I stumbled upon this, from the College Sustainability Report Card. The University received a B- grade for 2008, which was an improvement over last year. Our weak points were on "Endowment Transparency" and "Shareholder Engagement." Our strengths included "Investment Priorities" and "Student Involvement."

The report gives a shout-out to GreeND and orientation programs. Even though a B- isn't stellar, it's good to see improvement, and it's great to see that student involvement is our strong point. I hope to see these sustainability efforts sustain into the next school year.
