AASHE Stars Gold
The Association for the Advancement for Sustainability in Higher Education’s (AASHE) Sustainability Tracking and Rating System (STARS) is a point based sustainability self-assessment. The reporting system tracks four overarching categories: Education and Research; Operations, Planning, Administration and Engagement; and Innovation.
STARS is a transparent, self-reporting framework for colleges and universities to measure their sustainability performance. STARS® was developed by AASHE with broad participation from the higher education community. The University of Arkansas was first awarded STARS Gold in 2017 and was awarded Gold again in 2021!
