UC Irvine tops ‘Cool Schools’ list for sustainability efforts

Few institutions have as many environmentally friendly things perking at the same time as UC Irvine or have been able to continue so many of them during the COVID-19 pandemic. For that, the Sierra Club and its Sierra magazine bestowed UC Irvine with its 2020 award for the coolest of Cool Schools in its annual review. It isn’t the first time Irvine has earned the award.
