Colleges Removed From Climate Commitment List

July 2, 2010

The American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment -- which has more than 650 colleges committed to various environmental goals -- has removed 15 institutions from its list. The 15 colleges removed "had missed the first three initial reporting requirements: (1) an Implementation Profile due within two months of their start date; (2) a Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory due within one year of their start date; and (3) a Climate Action Plan due within two years of their start-date," said a statement from the group. Initially the organization said it would not release the names of these institutions, but when Inside Higher Ed noted that old lists of members were cached online, the group released a list: Birmingham-Southern College; Charles R. Drew University of Medicine & Science; Chicago State University; College of the Sequoias; Crafton Hills College; Hiwassee College; Interdenominational Theological Center; North Central Michigan College; Palo Verde College; Salem Community College; San Bernardino Community College District; San Bernardino Valley College; Springfield Technical Community College; the University of the Arts and Webster University.
