Workshop: Introduction to STARS: Chart your Course and Complete your First STARS Journey
May 4 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
This workshop has passed. You can purchase a copy of the recording and resource materials.
This workshop will provide an introduction to STARS and how it can be used to advance sustainability at your institution. We’ll provide an overview of the framework, a discussion of the reporting process from start to finish, and resources available to help you complete the journey and earn a rating. The “chart your course,” section will provide guidance on STARS goal-setting and creating a plan for report submission. The last leg of this journey will offer best practices for submitting for a rating, and using content from your first report to advance change, and launch future adventures.
This workshop is ideal for anyone that is new to STARS, thinking about using STARS, or is looking for a refresher on getting started, setting up data collection, and analyzing data. Participants will have opportunities to build their own project plan and brainstorm strategies to overcome common reporting challenges. Indiana University Southeast’s inaugural STARS submission will be applied as a case study throughout the workshop.

However, for this workshop, we’d like to try something different and offer a sliding scale payment model. All amounts give equal access to the workshop.
