STARS Information:

  • Credit Rationale: This credit recognizes institutions with sustainability learning outcomes that are associated with program degrees and/or courses of study.
  • Environmental Benefits: Learning outcomes help students develop specific sustainability knowledge and skills and provide institutions with goals against which to assess learning.
  • Scoring: Institution earns the maximum of 10 points for this credit when all students graduate from programs that have adopted at least one sustainability learning outcome. Incremental points are available based on the percentage of students who graduate from these programs. For example, if half of all students graduated from programs that have specified sustainability learning outcomes, an institution would earn 5 points (half of the points available for this credit).
