Sustainability Indicators

The sustainability indicators are a set of key metrics to help us track our progress towards long-term goals of campus sustainability. The metrics are intended to reflect the vision defined by the Campus Master Plan and 2020 Vision Statement. As we improve our methods of data collection, new indicators will be added and updated each year.
