For the 11th consecutive year, WKU has been recognized as one of the nation's most environmentally responsible colleges, according to The Princeton Review®.
WKU is among 416 schools profiled in The Princeton Review Guide to Green Colleges: 2021 Edition. The Princeton Review chose the schools based on a survey of administrators at 695 colleges in 2019-20 about their institutions’ commitments to the environment and sustainability.
WKU has created and maintained a culture of sustainability in the past two decades. In 2020, WKU maintained a STARS Silver rating in recognition of its sustainability achievements from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE); Ogden College Hall became the first educational laboratory in the United States to achieve WELL v2 Gold Certification by the International WELL Building Institute; and WKU’s Fresh Food Company became the first restaurant in Bowling Green, and the first restaurant on a Kentucky college campus, to earn Green Restaurant Certification from the Green Restaurant Association.
In recent years, WKU has earned national recognition and certifications as part of Tree Campus USA, U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools and more. In 2019, WKU was recognized internationally as the 284th World's Most Sustainable University in the University of Indonesia Green Metric World University Rankings.
