This searchable database of New School faculty and their research in sustainability is meant to be a student resource as well as impetus to encourage more research in this area. The university's pursuit of a STARS rating required this inventory of faculty involved in sustainability across all divisions.
The Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System™ (STARS) is a transparent, self-reporting framework for colleges and universities to measure their sustainability performance. STARS® was developed by AASHE with broad participation from the higher education community. The New School received a STARS Silver rating in August 2011.
