Many local administrators are pleased that the Sustainable Endowments Institute has awarded the University of Louisville a grade of B+ in its 2009 report card.
The University has improved its grade for four straight years. In 2007, for example, I noted the C+ that the school was awarded.
In the intervening years, the university has created a Sustainability Council (I'm a member), completed a greenhouse gas audit, participated in the preparation of a climate action plan, committed to reducing emissions via that plan, etc.
This is real progress, but there's still a long way to go.
