A brief description of the institution’s assurance process:

Reviewers were selected who have an understanding of university sustainability efforts. The primary STARS report developer (Alex Frank, Analyst, UW-Madison) then assigned credits to reviewers ensuring that each reviewer had no part in developing the STARS response for credits that they were assigned. The team then used the STARS review template to document comments and share updates to address those comments.
