    HBCUs are driving the energy and efficiency on their campuses and promoting sustainability through their policies and practices, says a comprehensive survey released on Earth Day by The Building Green Initiative at Clark Atlanta University.

    The survey ranked the nation’s most eco-friendly HBCUs and found the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and Florida A&M were the top green campuses among public institutions, while Spelman College and Howard University topped the list for private schools.

    The participating schools were separated into two ranking categories: public and private institutions.  Of the colleges surveyed, the top ten green HBCUs for 2014 are:


    1. Spelman College (Atlanta, GA)
    2. Howard University (Washington, DC)
    3. Morehouse College  (Atlanta, GA)
    4. Livingstone College (Salisbury, NC)
    5. (Tie) Claflin University (Orangeburg, SC) & Clark Atlanta University (Atlanta, GA)

    The Building Green Initiative at Clark Atlanta is working to increase campus-wide sustainability at minority serving institutions with a strong focus on HBCUs.
