A brief description of the institution’s assurance process:

The report was compiled and reviewed by Cynthia Philippe, Sustainability Coordinator. She documented all data sources and responses in accompanying folders. Daniel Lacroix then independently reviewed all data and responses to assure that they matched ASSHE STARS definitions and criteria. When applicable, I flagged the issues in the Review Template, which Cynthia reviewed and corrected. Daniel Lacroix then made one final review of all changes and signed the final report.
