This year, Spelman College joined the ranks of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability for Higher Education in an effort to create a more sustainable future. Although Spelman College considers sustainability as one of its seven core values outlined in its strategic plan, many of its current environmental initiatives are fairly broad. Among Spelman's most recent initiatives is campus-wide recycling. With the recent signing of the President's Climate Commitment, Spelman College demonstrates a willingness to integrate sustainability into its curriculum while simultaneously taking steps to reduce its carbon footprint. In 2008, Spelman College completed its first LEED certified residence hall building, becoming the first university in Georgia to achieve this recognition. Spelman College fails to disclose any environmental and social quantitative data in its reporting and greatly lacks any qualitative data. Several components measured by PSI are completely absent. Despite making strides in the green arena, Spelman College still is far from leading in sustainability. Analyzed by Daniel Olmsted, and posted to the web on 10/6/2010.
