WPI scores a B+ on the Sustainability Endowment Institute's Green Report Card!
WPI scores a B+ on the Sustainability Endowment Institute's Green Report Card! WPI's performance this year has improved substantially over the past two years. In 2008, WPI scored a D-, and in 2009, WPI scored a C-. "It is gratifying to see WPI's many accomplishments in sustainability - both for our campus and in our education and research activities - recognized. These simplified ratings and rankings can never tell the whole story, but given our very real accomplishments in this area, it is obviously desirable that they receive this positive public visibility. While our sustainability accomplishments have grown over that time, I believe that other major reasons for the dramatic rise in rankings relate to both the Endowment Institute's greater care in collecting data, and to our attention to effectively presenting the broad range of WPI's accomplishments." says Provost John Orr.
