A national group of environmentalists is praising Ball State University for its efforts promoting environmental sustainability in the classroom and on the Muncie campus.

The International Sustainable Campus Network gave the college
its Excellence in Integration Award Wednesday.

The group cited Ball State's courses on environmental sustainability and the creation of an environmental council to conserve resources around the campus. The group also lauded the
college's focus on building LEED certified facilities and a large geothermal heating and cooling system.

The college tracks environmental performance around the campus through its Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System.

Ball State Council on the Environment Chairman Robert Koester
called the university's efforts "unique" among other campuses
around the world.
