STARS is a powerful tool that may assist WPI in developing into a sustainable community. The goal of this project was to determine whether or not STARS is a practical method for WPI to track and improve its sustainability, and if any adjustments are necessary to improve its efficacy. Given the extensive scope of the STARS 0.5 rubric, this project only focused on Category 2: Operations. This project analyzed the STARS 0.5 program to better understand its form and function, discussed key information regarding the operations and practices of the WPI campus as they pertain to the rubric, and investigated the feasibility of utilizing the STARS 0.5 Operations Category at WPI and employed the rubric to identify areas in which WPI can improve its sustainability.
