Many of the benchmarks are indicators of business office achievement. From endowments to facilities and fleets, join this session to understand how the business office is an integral part of higher education sustainability practices and performance.

  • With more than 900 participants in 40 countries, the STARS program is the most widely recognized framework in the world for publicly reporting comprehensive information related to a college or university’s sustainability performance.
  • STARS is open to all institutions of higher education, and the criteria that determine a STARS rating are transparent and accessible to anyone.
  • STARS is a program of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).
  • AASHE is an association of colleges and universities that are working to create a sustainable future. AASHE’s mission is to empower higher education to lead the sustainability transformation.  It provides resources, professional development and a network of support to enable institutions of higher education to model and advance sustainability in everything they do, from governance and operations to education and research.
