The American University of Cairo has made the list due to the efforts of their Center for Applied Research on the Environment and Sustainability, as well as their Office of Sustainability.
The American University in Cairo has made it to the Princeton Review’s annual ‘Guide to Green Colleges’ list. The roundup is meant to inform students who are interested in attending institutions with a strong commitment to sustainability. The 12th annual edition for 2022 surveyed 835 colleges, but only 420 made the final list.
While only the top 50 schools are ranked, the rest of the named universities don’t occupy a numbered spot on the list, so we don’t have an exact number to measure AUC’s successes in comparison with other colleges on the list. However, its placement on the list is well-earned due to AUC’s Center for Applied Research on the Environment and Sustainability, as well as their Office of Sustainability. On top of that, they’ve been responsible for numerous green projects including the development of a sustainable trash management system, and the construction of the university’s first extensive green roof.
