STARS at UNL
The Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS) is a transparent, self-reporting framework for colleges and universities to measure their sustainability performance. STARS is a program of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).
UNL completed its first STARS report in 2014 and has increased its score with each subsequent rating, officially earning a gold rating with the 2022 report.
STARS was created by and for higher education and designed to ensure that participation has multiple benefits:
- Gain international recognition for sustainability efforts
- Engage campus community members in building a culture of sustainability on campus and beyond
- Create a baseline for continuous sustainability improvement
