Penn State Scores Well in Sustainability Report
A new study released by the Sustainability Endowments Institute has given Penn State a B+ grade for campus and endowment sustainability activities. This score is up from the B given to the University last year. The annual study takes the 300 colleges and universities in the United States that have the largest endowments and assigns them a letter grade in 9 categories.
