From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Eco League is a five-college consortium consisting of Alaska Pacific University, Green Mountain College, Northland College, Prescott College and College of the Atlantic. The consortium is unique, in that each college is in a different geographic area. Alaska Pacific University is in Anchorage, Alaska. It is the only college in an urban center. Prescott College is situated in Prescott, Arizona, making it the only southwestern campus. Northland, a Midwestern campus, is situated in Ashland, Wisconsin. Green Mountain College is in Poultney, Vermont, a small town situated in rural Vermont's Green Mountains. College of the Atlantic's ocean-front campus is situated on Mount Desert Island in Down East Maine, directly adjacent to Acadia National Park. Despite a wide variation in acceptance levels and academic ratings, all five colleges have strong programs in Environmental Studies. The essential beauty of the consortium is the ability to experience learning in virtually every major biome of the United States.

The Eco League was created in response to a student call for better academic collaboration and mobility. This call was first articulated by students at Prescott College who in 1996 founded the North American Alliance for Green Education, an earlier consortium and non-profit originally envisioned and founded by students at Prescott College in 1996. The Eco League exchange program was based directly on a student exchange system that was first designed and negotiated by the NAAGE institutional founders.
