The website EnvironmentalScience.org recently released their first annual Top Environmental Science Schools rankings, placing Maharishi University of Management (MUM) #4 in their list of the 50 top colleges.
The purpose of the list and rankings is to help prospective students interested in environmental science identify the school that's right for them.
The rankings are based on published surveys, student data, and other school and career data collected through sources such as The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System and the National Center for Education Statistics. Also figuring into the ranking is the percentage of total students graduating with an environmental science degree.
The top 50 list can be found at www.environmentalscience.org/top-schools.
MUM has also been named a "Sierra Club Cool School" and has been included in The Princeton Review's Guide to 332 Green Colleges because of the strong commitment to the environment and sustainability.
"This ranking is different from other ratings in that it reflects the degree of a university's student commitment to sustainability by measuring the proportion that major in an environmental degree," said David Fisher, chair of Sustainable Living. "In this respect, MUM ranks very near the top, which is an indication of our students' greater awareness of the planet's condition and needs than that of students in most universities."
