...Y El Circulo Juvenil orgulloso de ser parte de todo esto!
...And the Circulo is proud to be a part of it! This Earth Day (Friday, April 22), Carnegie Mellon has reason to celebrate. The university has been recognized by The Princeton Review and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its leadership in environmental research and education and for its sustainability practices, positioning CMU among the greenest colleges and universities. CMU will be featured in "The Princeton Review's Guide to 311 Green Colleges," a free guidebook available for download at http://www.princetonreview.com/green-guide.aspx that profiles the most environmentally responsible colleges in the United States and Canada. The schools included in the guide were chosen based on their sustainability-related policies, practices and programs. The Princeton Review cites CMU's robust environmental research programs, commitment to green design and building, and dedicated Green Practices Committee among the reasons for the university's inclusion in the listing. The EPA's Green Power Partnership announced that Carnegie Mellon used the most green power of any school in its athletic conference, the University Athletic Association. By purchasing close to 87 million kilowatt hours of green power, CMU significantly bested its cohorts in the UAA, as well as most schools in other athletic conferences. Of the participating schools, only one other, the University of Pennsylvania, purchased more green power than CMU.
