A brief description of the plan’s measurable goals :
This document is designed to be a sustainability action plan. Its purpose is to provide UCR with a clear and actionable road map to sustainability through well-defined goals and practical implementation steps. The document also identifies gaps in environmental performance data that UCR must close in order to adequately assess the attainment of its sustainability goals. The recommendations in this action plan are ultimately intended to facilitate UCR’s achievement of goals set forth by the UC Policy on Sustainable Practices (UC Policy) and the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), as well as foster a university community that embraces sustainability and incorporates its principles throughout academic and operational units.

A brief description of how progress in meeting the plan’s goals is measured:
Progress will be measured against how well UCR meets its obligation to fulfilling the ACUPCC agreement, the UCOP Sustainability Policy, the UCR Climate Action Plan and by its ranking on the Princeton Green College Review, STARS and Sierra magazine's Coolest Schools.
