Abstract

Existing sustainability benchmarking tools for universities are resource intensive and do not adequately address curriculum and research content. Our sponsors, the University of Worcester and Kingston University, are interested in easily evaluating the curriculum and research of their universities. Previous WPI project teams developed a sustainability benchmarking tool to fulfill these needs. We improved the benchmarking tool through revision, application, and evaluation with the help of our sponsors. We found that the benchmarking tool was useful to the University of Worcester but was challenging to implement at other universities due to inconsistencies with how data was stored. We recommend the tool be improved through interaction with more universities in the United Kingdom.
