For the sixth year, AUC has been named in The Princeton Review Guide to Green Colleges.

The University is among 420 schools that were chosen for the guide based on an analysis of their institutional commitment to the environment and sustainability. It joins a school in Canada, one in Ecuador and one in Greece as the only non-U.S.-based colleges on the list.

"We have achieved progress this year in the Princeton Review's green rating – from 94 out of 99 in the prior submission to 98 out of 99 for this year," shared Yasmin Mansour, AUC's sustainability director.

Rob Franek, The Princeton Review's editor-in-chief, noted that in a 2021 survey conducted by the review, 78% of 11,000 college applicants expressed interest in colleges with environmentally friendly practices, –– a 12% increase from the previous year.

"This recognition demonstrates our role as a global and regional model in terms of sustainability,” Mansour said. "We hope to continue implementing policies and programs that reinforce our commitment to maintaining an environmentally friendly institution.”
