The program provides a voluntary, self-reporting framework for gauging relative progress toward more environmentally-friendly policies."

According to Carol Steele, associate dean of academic affairs and leader of DePauw's sustainability efforts, "STARS is a huge leap forward in helping us build an even stronger and more diverse campus sustainability program. "It will give us the capability of knowing where we started, where we are now, and where we aspire to be. Choosing to participate in this tracking system is another indication of DePauw's deep commitment to eventually reaching carbon neutrality."
