A brief description of how multiple stakeholder groups were involved in developing the plan:

The scope and content was driven by input from a broad range of stakeholder groups, including operations staff, faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, senior administrators, regional campus representatives, and West Lafayette community members.

A brief description of the plan’s measurable goals :

The initial plan included eight subcategories: Site Considerations, Water Resources, Energy & Built Environment, Materials Management, Food Systems, Academics & Research, Endowment/Development & Community Relationships. Included in these eight categories were 56 short term goals (2014) and 85 long term goals (2025). A few additional goals have been added since the creation of this plan.
