1. Congress Passes Higher Education Sustainability Act (HESA)
Congress has passed all provisions of the Higher Education Sustainability Act (HESA) as part of the new Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HR 4137). HR 4137, expected to be signed into law shortly by President Bush, creates a "University Sustainability Grants Program" at the Department of Education. It will offer competitive grants to institutions and associations of higher education to develop, implement and evaluate sustainability curricula, practices, and academic programs. This is the first new federal environmental education funding program authorized in 18 years. The bill also directs the Department of Education to convene a national summit of higher education sustainability experts, federal agency staff, and business leaders to identify best practices and opportunities for collaboration in sustainability.

2. Princeton Review Releases Green Ratings
The Princeton Review has released its first "Green Rating" of colleges, a measure of how environmentally friendly, responsible, and committed the institutions are. The Green Rating is a numerical score on a scale of 60 to 99 that The Princeton Review tallied for 534 colleges and universities based on data it collected from the schools in the 2007-08 academic year concerning their environmentally related policies, practices, and academic offerings. The scores appear in the website profiles of the 534 schools on The Princeton Review's website. They will also be in the print profiles of those schools in the 2009 editions of three Princeton Review books. Eleven colleges have received the top rating: Arizona State University, Bates College (ME), Binghamton University (NY), College of the Atlantic (ME), Emory University (GA), Georgia Institute of Technology, Harvard University (MA), University of New Hampshire, University of Oregon, University of Washington, and Yale University (CT).

3. New York Times Special Feature on Campus Sustainability
The New York Times has published an Education Life supplement with three articles on campus sustainability. "Green, Greener, Greenest" covers the emergence of campus sustainability ranking systems. The article mentions the Princeton Review's soon-to-be released annual guide to colleges, which will include a green rating, AASHE's Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS), the Sustainable Endowments Institute's report card, and other ranking lists provided by Forbes, Grist, and Sierra magazines. The piece also mentions the effort of the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment to reduce, and ideally eliminate, carbon emissions at campuses across the US, and various sustainability initiatives taking place at US colleges and universities. "The Sustainable Hampton" covers the State University of New York's Stony Brook Southampton campus' sustainability initiatives. The article mentions that the campus has fused sustainability into all of its courses, will soon construct a 300-bed residence hall that seeks at least LEED Silver certification, and plans to install a geothermal heating and water system in its library building. Finally, "Catalysts for Change" briefly summarizes sustainability initiatives at Dartmouth College (NH), California State University, Chico, MIT, Brown University's (RI), University of Kentucky, and St. Lawrence University (NY).
