Its always interesting to see different perspectives on sustainability. While the most recent Sierra Club list puts Willamette at 17th, the NWF last year conducted a more comprehensive study for its 2008 National Report Card on Sustainability in Higher Education. Willamette was honored at that time to receive the nod as the top university as to sustainability. NWF National Report Card on Sustainability in Higher Education As with any ranking, methodologies differ and are subject to debate. And rankings in this area are perhaps as controversial as US News and World Report -- but, I do find it refreshing to compete for an honor that really matters!!!
