2010-2011 Western Sustainability Report

The 2010-2011 Western Sustainability Report contains a representation of sustainability initiatives, projects, and curriculum from departments, offices, and organizations across campus since the last edition in 2008. This document measures Western's progress in 12 categories following a basic model set forth by the Sustainability Tracking and Rating System (STARS), a campus sustainability tool created by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE). These categories are able to describe many, but not all, of the curriculum and research developments, operational strategies, and outreach efforts that contribute to the character of Western Sustainability. To articulate strengths and weaknesses each category is divided into five subcategories, which include an Introduction, Area Updates, Metrics, Program Strengths, and Program Suggestions. Since the last edition of the Report, Western has seen a marked integration of sustainable thought and activity into the areas of academics, operations, and outreach. The report was produced by the Office of Sustainability.
