The Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System™ (STARS®) is a transparent, self-reporting framework for colleges and universities to measure their sustainability performance. STARS is intended to engage and recognize the full spectrum of higher education institutions, from community colleges to research universities. The framework encompasses long-term sustainability goals for already high-achieving institutions, as well as entry points of recognition for institutions that are taking first steps toward sustainability.  

STARS Reporting involves collecting information about UTSA’s sustainability initiatives and performance, documenting that information in the online Reporting Tool, and submitting a report to earn public recognition in the form of a Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum rating.  UTSA is currently rated as a Silver campus.  Check out how UTSA is doing compared to other Texas institutions.
