A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome :

We have created a ‘Get-on-the-Map’ web interface by which the administrators, faculty, staff and students of our university can share information about their achievements — individually or within their campus group; thereby establishing STARS reporting and auditing as a running day-to-day operational practice.

Once submitted, we then aggregate this material as a listing of the community of achievements and, by spreadsheet, an auditing of the numbers of steps taken in a given STARS category to demonstrate fully our compliance with requirements for achieving points in the rating system.
