SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. — Slippery Rock University has again been ranked among the world's most environmentally friendly colleges and universities by the University of Indonesia's GreenMetric World University Rankings. SRU was ranked 9th in the United States and 153rd in the world. SRU moved up 11 spots in national ranking while its global position jumped 41 spots from one year ago.

The rankings are published annually by UI GreenMetric, a program that ranks universities by their commitment and action towards going green and environmental sustainability. The rankings aim to increase awareness in universities towards sustainability.

This year, 780 universities from 85 countries participated in the rankings. The UI rankings are the only university rankings that measure each participating university's commitment in developing an "environmentally friendly" infrastructure by looking at six indicators for each university, including: setting and infrastructure, energy and climate change, waste, water, transportation and education.

Data for the rankings was collected through an online questionnaire with answers validated through evidence provided by each participating institution.
