Colorado State University logoFORT COLLINS - Colorado State University has received the top score in the nation for its sustainability efforts from Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Reporting (STARS), a national survey that measures sustainability at universities and colleges across the U.S.

CSU said it achieved the highest score ever in the STARS survey. It is the second time CSU achieved the top score, the other being in 2011.

"Colorado State is proud to be a leader in the research and practice of environmental sustainability, and the STARS score is a real testament to our high-caliber environmental research faculty and operations staff," said Rick Miranda, CSU provost and executive VP.

"As a university, we want to be fully engaged in sustainability. Conducting critical environmental research, maximizing efficiency in operations, and engaging Colorado communities on sustainability issues are university-wide efforts. We are able to leverage these areas with expanded environmental studies programs to prepare learners to be the next generation of sustainability leaders."
