A brief description of the plan’s measurable goals :

In 2010, LSU was not yet a participant of STARS, so we followed similar goals as the STARS rating system. Each stragety (credit) included objectives, examples, challenges and a target goal.

A brief description of how progress in meeting the plan’s goals is measured:

LSU Sustainability Goals and Strategies (Sustainability Plan) was reviewed annually by the Campus Committee for Sustainability. It was never formally adopted as LSU officially joined STARS and began benchmarking against its criteria.
