The UVM Office of Sustainability tracks progress towards University goals and commitments relating to climate change, energy, Real Food, and sustainability education, often working in conjunction with students, faculty, staff, and community members.
As of 2013 the Office of Sustainability will be tracking a variety of indicators using STARS, the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System developed and maintained through AASHE, the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education. The next goal is to submit UVM data for review in December, 2013, making data publicly available in time for the spring data collection efforts by Princeton Review, Sierra Magazine, and others who assess the integration of environmental responsibility and sustainability into the business and curriculum of higher education.
You can learn more about our progress through the STARS pages accessible from the left menu. We're collecting data over the course of the fall 2013.
