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:

Private

  1. Spelman College (Atlanta, GA)

  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.
