Sierra Club rates universities...guess what?

Penn State isn't even on the Sierra Club list. I have to admit that this is rather flabbergasting. But be that we've been simply left off the list, it's nice to see what the criteria for evaluation are. I mean, we do have one of the biggest composting programs in the country, several LEED certified buildings, community garden plots, the Center for Sustainability, some of the best environmental science programs in the country through several colleges and departments (except we do have major shills in those same colleges for unsustainable practices), a proactive Office of Physical Plant, and more.

None of that is to say that we don't need to improve. But we aren't even on the list. Who was this evaluator?
