STARS Data Quality Boot Camp Webinar Series: Overall Tips
January 22, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm ESTFree
Expanded from last year, the STARS Data Quality Boot Camp Series will help you gain the insights you need to submit a high-quality STARS report in time for the 2019 Sustainable Campus Index, Princeton Review and Sierra data sharing deadlines. Every STARS 2.1 report undergoes a standard collaborative review and revision process intended to catch data quality issues before it is published. While this process helps to promote data quality, it can result in a long delay if significant issues are found in the report. This series of webinars will focus on data accuracy tips for credits that are commonly misinterpreted. Join presenters Jordan Schanda and Monika Urbanski as they explain what you can do to put your best report forward before the 2019 deadlines!
The first webinar in the series focuses on general tips that apply across all STARS categories and credits, and an overview of the 2019 data sharing deadlines and parameters. Special attention will be paid to the first section of STARS (Institutional Characteristics), as well as Innovation credits.
