“Cool Schools”

For the first time, CI has been recognized by Sierra Magazine in its annual “Cool Schools” edition.  This ranking evaluates colleges and universities based on sustainable practices and facilities in eleven categories.  CI was ranked 57th among the schools included in the publication.  While most schools in the rating are significantly larger than CI and have the benefit of well-funded campus sustainability programs.  CI’s ranking was ½ point behind nearby Pepperdine University and ahead of campuses such as UC Riverside and the University of Michigan.  The complete ratings are available at

CI Reaches Recycling Rate of 63%

After setting a campus recycling goal of 60%, CI reached a recycling rate of 63%! A new goal of 70% has recently been established and we look to everyone on campus to help us in achieving or surpassing this goal. The campus’ success can be attributed to a heightened awareness of recycling and benefits to the environment,  as well as countless efforts that have been aimed at making recycling easier.

Additionally, CI recently installed new bins throughout the campus with specific compartments for waste and recyclable items. These bins provide a detail poster of what can be recycled to eliminate any confusion and hope that these efforts will help increase our recycling rates.
