REV Campus Challenge

Reforming the Energy Vision—and the future of all New Yorkers—will require harnessing the intellectual potential of New York State’s institutions of higher education...


The REV Campus Challenge promotes clean energy efforts by recognizing and supporting NYS colleges and universities that implement clean energy projects and principles on campus, in the classroom, and in surrounding communities. For the purposes of the REV Campus Challenge, clean energy is inclusive of energy efficiency, energy conservation, and renewable energy efforts.

REV Campus Challenge members include two- and four-year, public and private institutions from all regions of NYS. From community colleges to state research universities to private liberal arts colleges, REV Campus Challenge members represent New York’s leaders in institutional sustainability.

As an institution of higher education, we recognize the unique position we are in to further clean energy adoption in New York State through our actions on campus, by training tomorrow's leaders, and by working with our local communities.
