Sustainability Curriculum and Research

Sustainability brainstorming on whiteboard

2016 - 2018

Sustainability Curriculum and Research Plans for a 3-year period (2016-2018) were prepared by Academic Sustainability Programs during Fall 2015.

Both plans were developed in preparation for Auburn University's submission in early 2016, of credits for a SILVER rating in the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System (STARS) of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), based on credits for Sustainability Planning in the Stars 2.1.2 Technical Manual.


These plans include specific objectives and deliverables in the areas of both research and teaching, to be pursued during 2016-2018 at Auburn University.
