AASHE awards Whitman College Silver STARS rating

This March the College was recognized by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE). The process for recognition consisted of a lengthy assessment of all campus academics, research, operations, planning, grounds, construction, waste management, energy use, water use and a number of other subcategories. As a result of the assessment the institution received a STARS Silver Rating for our sustainability efforts.

AASHE STARS is utilized by more than 650 institutions of higher education for sustainability benchmarking. The rating system is utilized by the Princeton review, Sierra Club and other NGOs when ranking an institution as a “Green School.” This is the first time AASHE STARs has issued a full ranking of Whitman College.
