Wellesley College
PAE-3: Physical Campus Plan

Status Score Responsible Party
Complete 4.00 / 4.00 Patrick Willoughby
Sustainability Director


Institution’s current plan for its physical campus (commonly referred to as the campus master plan) includes sustainability at a high level.  

An amendment to the plan may count for this credit, as long as the institution always presents the amendment with the original plan.   

Neither a strategic plan (which is covered in PAE Credit 2: Strategic Plan) nor an independent sustainability plan (which is covered in PAE Credit 4: Sustainability Plan) counts for this credit. 

Plans developed at the system level are eligible for this credit.  Likewise, multiple plans which together cover the institution’s entire physical campus are eligible for this credit. 


This credit applies to all institutions that have a physical campus plan or plans.


Institutions earn 4 points for having a plan that meets the criteria outlined above.  Partial points are not available for this credit. 




Report on the institution’s current physical campus plan or equivalent document.
