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:

This is Westminster's fourth STARS submission, and it is the fourth time the process as been completed primarily by students. During summer 2019, Westminster, College, Williams College, and Weber State University conducted a survey of students and alumni who had participated in the STARS completion process. While using students to gather data for STARS may be a common practice, assessing its impact on student sustainability knowledge, skills acquisition, and career choices is an important new step. Survey respondents indicated significant increased sustainability knowledge as a result of participating in the STARS process. Complete findings will be presented at the AASHE 2019 conference.
