Description:

Map and analyze the Sierra Club's 2009 “cool schools” ranking—colleges and universities judged to be doing the most to help the planet. The judging criteria included efficiency, energy, food usage, academics, purchasing, transportation, waste, and administration. More and more college applicants say that a university’s environmental stewardship could influence their decision to enroll there. The spatial thinker always wants to map things to determine if a pattern exists, so we built a geodatabase to analyze the 135 universities included in the study. 19 out of the 20 greenest universities have an ESRI GIS site license and offer a GIS program of study.
