Webinar: Summarizing Your STARS Report for Senior Leadership
December 1 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm ESTFree
Webinar moved from 8/25 to 12/1
Building off of the “Conversations on STARS as a Strategic Tool for Advancing Sustainability” 2020 GCSHE presentation, this webinar will dive into the creation of the STARS Report Summary (presented by Boston University).
After completing a STARS report, it can be difficult for reporters to convey to their senior leaders the opportunities and difficulties the institution has in becoming sustainable. This webinar will show how Boston University has developed a one-pager and 10-page report summary used to effectively communicate: the state of the university, % of STARS credits achievable, improvement opportunities, and more.
