A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

The Sustainability Office has adopted a new concept called "Sustainability Circles"
A Sustainability Circle indicates that a group of volunteering
members who have interests in a sustainability-related track will
meet regularly to identify, analyze, and suggest initiatives or
solutions to sustainability-related issues on campus. The group is
usually led by a sustainability track leader.

It has been adopted by the Sustainability Office to engage the
members of the UOS community (students, staff, and faculty
members) in its endeavors to develop a culture of sustainability
and incorporate sustainability in every aspect of the campus life.
The Sustainability Office has established 30 Sustainability
Circles. Each of these Sustainability Circles is associated with a
specific sustainable field, and has its own goals, Key of
Performance Indicators (KPIs), achievement and initiatives.
