The concept of sustainability is getting popular in Northern American colleges and universities; however, its movement is still at the beginning phase. Currently, there is no definite answer of how an institution can reach sustainability in the most effective way. However, many colleges and universities have taken similar steps towards sustainability. The purpose of this document is to explain the six foundation steps towards campus sustainability and provide suggested solutions for environmental sustainability problems in the areas of social, water, waste, and energy. This document is divided into two parts. Part 1, Steps of the Sustainability Master Plan, and Part 2, Suggested Sustainability Solutions.
