OSU gets a gold star for sustainability

Oregon State University is one of seven U.S. universities to receive a gold designation by the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System โ€” the shorthand for the system is STARS.

Administered by the Association for Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, STARS rates universities on their education and research focuses in addition to operations, planning and student engagement.

OSU joins the ranks of gold-rated schools that include American University, Duke University, Middlebury College, New York University, University of Colorado in Boulder and University of South Florida.

Corvallis-based OSU was the first Oregon university to be rated by the program. Eastern Oregon University, Lewis & Clark College, Oregon Institute of Technology, Portland State University and University of Oregon have all begun the application process for a rating.
