UMaine Earns STARS Silver Sustainability Rating

The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) recently awarded the University of Maine its first STARS Silver Rating for recycling almost half of its waste, promoting student life opportunities such as the Green Living and Learning dorm floor, reducing water consumption, and several other initiatives.

The Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System (STARS) measures achievements in academics, engagement, operations, planning and administration, and innovation and leadership.
