AASHE Rating: Bronze

What is “AASHE”?

The Association for the Advancement for Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) is an organization that uses the Sustainability Tracking and Rating System (STARS) to rate the sustainability performance of universities and colleges around the world.  Over 1,000 institutions are rated by AASHE.  Possible ratings from most to least prestigious include Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, or Reporter.  The University of Delaware earned a Bronze rating.

In January 2023, the University of Delaware’s Bronze rating will expire and we will default to Reporter status.
