Don’t Get Left Out: Navigating New Processes for Sharing STARS Data with Sierra and Princeton Review
January 24 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm ESTFree
Since 2012, AASHE has collaborated with Sierra magazine and The Princeton Review to allow colleges and universities to use the STARS Reporting Tool to share their sustainability data for potential inclusion in Sierra’s Cool Schools ranking and The Princeton Review’s Guide to Green Colleges. This year, in response to feedback from AASHE members, AASHE, Sierra and The Princeton Review have made some significant changes to the data sharing process. Join this webinar to learn about these changes and how they impact you. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions.
