The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, AASHE, has recognized Denison for its achievements in sustainability.

Once again, Denison has been recognized for its achievements in sustainability by Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).

Denison is ranked as No. 2 for Public Engagement, #4 for Food and Dining and #9 overall for baccalaureate colleges.

AASHE released the 2016 Sustainable Campus Index, a publication that recognizes top-performing colleges and universities in 17 distinct aspects of sustainability and overall, as measured by the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS). The report also highlights innovative and high-impact initiatives from institutions that submitted STARS reports in the 12 months prior to July 1, 2016.

The institutions and initiatives featured in this year's Sustainable Campus Index showcase the great work that higher education institutions are doing to lead the global sustainability transformation. I hope the contents of this report will inspire students, administrators, faculty and staff at colleges and universities to work together to implement innovative solutions to the challenges that we face today.
