S&T’s dedication to environmental sustainability and stewardship paid off this fall with a “silver” rating in the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System (STARS). S&T is one of 103 universities in the nation to achieve the silver
STARS designation.

STARS is a national program developed by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education to help colleges and universities measure their environmental and other sustainability efforts. Participants report achievements in the areas of education and research, operations, and planning administration and engagement.

STARS also offers bronze, gold and platinum designations. Only 37 universities have achieved a gold rating. No institution has attained a platinum rating.
