Coming in at No. 35, CSUN is the highest-ranked campus in the California State University system on the Sierra Club’s list of greenest colleges and universities.

“We are proud once again to be named the top-ranked CSU on the list,” said Austin Eriksson, director of energy and sustainability. “Sustainability is a priority at CSUN, from campus operations and infrastructure to outreach, education and research. This ranking underscores our deep commitment to shaping a more sustainable future as well as highlights all of the contributions our campus community has made toward these efforts.”
