Key AASHE Resources

The Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS) is a transparent, self-reporting framework for colleges and universities to measure their sustainability performance. Stanislaus State will launch our first STARS audit beginning fall 2019. 

The Campus Sustainability Hub is a one-stop shop for AASHE members to access toolkits and resource collections about all aspects of sustainability in higher education, from academics to operations to governance. You can browse by sustainability topic or content type.

AASHE Connect is a dynamic community for all AASHE members to share knowledge, ask questions, and network with one another about all topics related to sustainability in higher education. 

AASHE Bulletin is a weekly newsletter of campus sustainability successes, resources, regional and online events, and campus sustainability jobs. 

AASHE publications examine a wide range of higher education sustainability issues and include focused reports, how-to guides and benchmarking tools. Many of these resources are produced in collaboration with other people or organizations.

The Sustainable Campus Partners Directory is a list of businesses and non-profit organizations that provide service discounts and promotional offers to AASHE's member insitutions. 

Higher Education Associations Sustainability Consortium (HEASC)

The Higher Education Associations Sustainability Consortium (HEASC) is a network of higher education associations with a commitment to advancing sustainability within their constituencies and the entire system of higher education. AASHE serves as the coordinating body for HEASC.

Are you or your students worried about the impacts of climate change and not sure what to do to help create significant change? Organized by the Higher Education Associations Sustainability Consortium (HEASC) and the Disciplinary Associations Network for Sustainability (DANS), Beyond Doom and Gloom: Climate Solutions is an initiative to empower students, educators and the public to advocate for climate solutions that seeks to direct the frustration and worry about climate change into increased knowledge and productive actions.
