Progress

Prog-ress: [noun]. a movement toward a goal or to a further or higher stage. (Dictionary.com)
 
Over the last decade, Aquinas College has been on an intentional journey towards sustainability. The path has been one of discernment, action, and increasing accomplishments. This section contains snapshots of our progress, a compilation of our movement to embed the Triple Bottom Line (environmental, social, and financial capital) approach to business.
 
The Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System™ (STARS) contains the metrics used by Aquinas to measure progress and benchmark performance against other colleges and universities. STARS is a transparent, self-reporting framework for colleges and universities to measure their sustainability performance. >More information
