A brief description of the institution’s assurance process:

Following the collection of all applicable data, the Office of Sustainability began a three-tiered hybrid review method. First, the data was reviewed again by the AASHE STARS Data Coordinator to check for any errors in his work and contact any appropriate personnel for corrections and clarifications. Then the data was given to the Director of Sustainability to review for any errors and ensure proper descriptions and answers were provided when asked in each credit. Finally, the submission was given to the Project Coordinator at Montana State University, an external member of the Sustainability Partnership of the Northern Rockies (SPNR), for final review and approval.
