A brief description of how multiple stakeholder groups were involved in developing the plan:
The IIT Sustainability Plan was developed by students, faculty, staff, and professionals from across the university. Action plan groups were put together to analyze and develop plans in the areas of transportation, stormwater/landscape, material flow, green building, food, energy, and emissions. These groups encompassed ideas from multiple stakeholder groups on campus. Furthermore, the plan encompasses the need for input from professional organizations and communities beyond IIT's boundaries and communitcates a well rounded and involved interaction from all those touched by IIT's sustainability efforts.
A brief description of the plan’s measurable goals :
IIT's overall goal is to become the most sustainable urban university campus in the country. Specific measurable goals have been laid out and continue to be updated in the areas of transportation, stormwater/landscape, material flow, green building, food, energy, and emissions. For a detailed look at some of these goals and their potential solutions, please visit the website listed.
A brief description of how progress in meeting the plan’s goals is measured:
As a key element of the Campus Sustainability Plan, IIT created a Metrics Plan detailing the information that would be tracked, the owner of the information, and the frequency with which the data will be gathered. This tool will guide the Office of Campus Energy and Sustainability as it measures progress against the Campus Sustainability Plan going forward.
