STARS is a points-based system of benchmarking efforts at sustainability in three comprehensive areas: Education & Research; Operations; and Planning, Administration & Engagement.
The information gathering for this assessment took a full year and required cooperation from a number of campus departments and offices. The resulting report not only highlights some of the tremendously positive sustainability work happening here at SIU, but also indicates where further progress can be made.
STARS is a fully transparent reporting system, and all information supplied is available for viewing at SIU Carbondale’s page on STARS website.
SIU is one of only 283 participants to have completed the STARS report. You can view the full list of STARS institutions and their respective reports here.
