A brief description of the institution’s assurance process:

The internal review was completed by Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer A.T. Miller. Document was filled out with extensive in person discussion between the months of July and September of 2020. Reporter Eric Urbaniak and A.T. met weekly for 3 months to address inconsistencies and improve the reports.

Similarly, reporter Eric Urbaniak worked with Michigan State University Director of Sustainability Amy Butler to identify inconsistencies. This was done over long distance with no face to face interactions, so extensive notes were taken in the review document. The reviewer and reporter met several times over the phone to clarify credit criteria and finalize the review.
