University of Minnesota
is featured in a list of a dozen of the country's most eco-friendly colleges and universities on the website
of the Ethiopian Review, a Washington, DC-based journal of Ethiopian and world affairs.
Schools are often "epicenters for environmental activism and change," with advanced recycling, composting and green building initiatives, for example, the post states.
At the University of Minnesota specifically, energy efficiency is a big priority.
Some of the other projects at the university that the website lauds have to do with recently installed cogeneration and biofuels plants, university fleet vehicles that run on alternative fuels, LEED sustainable construction, numerous green-focused student groups, and a popular organic teaching farm, it states.
