Sustainability Curriculum and Research

Sustainability brainstorming on whiteboard

Every 3 years, the Academic Sustainability Program completes inventories of all research and teaching activities on campus that relate to sustainability studies. These inventories are completed as part of Auburn University's participation in the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS) of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE). For guidelines on the preparation of these inventories, and information about Auburn's most recent Silver STARS rating in 2016, see​

Comments or questions about Auburn University's sustainability research and teaching inventories maybe submitted to the Director of Academic Sustainability Programs. As of March 2020, please email CLA Associate Dean Dr. Giovanna Summerfield.
