It’s a debut effort and includes few details, but the animal-rights group Peta2 has just released a report card on how accommodating colleges and universities are to vegans.
One of the two Minnesota “A” earners is no surprise — “A” St. Olaf College, which is renowned for its cafeteria.
But the University of Minnesota – Crookston? That A student pummeled the Twin Cities campus, which received an “F.”
(That said, it could be lack of participation in the ranking that drove this.)
The survey-driven methodology is a bit fuzzy. Peta2 said it polled campuses for the report card, but also enables students to rate their colleges on the site.
The schools were ranked based on factors such as having an all-vegan dining facility, partnering with students to distribute vegan food and including a vegan member on its student advisory board.
You can access the ranking here. Choose “Minnesota” on the state-selector menu at the top.
