UNH Pathway to Platinum Report

In September 2017, the University of New Hampshire (UNH) at Durham became one of only three institutions of higher education in the country to earn a STARS Platinum rating from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE). This recognition places us at the highest level of sustainability performance among colleges and universities. UNH’s Platinum rating was made possible through a concerted, university-wide effort that engaged faculty, staff, and students over the past year.

This report offers a snapshot of the metrics that underpin UNH’s accomplishments with regard to sustainability, the benefits that have come from the submission process, and a candid assessment of the challenges and opportunities that lay before us as we continue to work toward our shared vision of sustainability at UNH.
