CARLSBAD, Calif. – Colorado State University is among 16 colleges and universities across the nation that have demonstrated excellence in environmental academics and sustainability practices, according to Enviance Inc., a provider of environmental ERP software in 49 countries.
CSU was the only Colorado-based institution on the Enviance list. Enviance, in partnership with GreenBiz Group and Qualtrics, will select a National Champion in the Second Annual Environmental March Madness tournament.
“The judges chose the top Sustainable 16 schools from a competitive group of institutions, which all demonstrated commitment to the environment through both their environmental degree programs and on-campus initiatives,” said Lawrence Goldenhersh, Enviance CEO and president and a tournament judge.
“All of the participating schools are grooming future environmental leaders who will oversee the environmental compliance, sustainability and corporate responsibility programs of tomorrow for Fortune 500 companies, government agencies and other organizations.”
The tournament was designed to evaluate colleges and universities on environmental degree programs and curriculum, environmental opportunities for students and campus sustainability efforts, organizers said.
