Dominican receives national ranking for sustainability

Dominican University of California has received a bronze level ranking in sustainability, according to the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System (STARS) of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).

 “This is an incredible accomplishment considering how rigorous and comprehensive this evaluation was,” said Dr. Vania Coelho, faculty coordinator for Dominican's Center for Sustainability. “This rating is a clear testament to the commitment that our students, faculty and staff have shown over the years. Without support at all levels we would never have been able to achieve such a milestone.”

Led by the Dominican STARS assessment team of Dr. Coelho, Associate Professor, Department of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, School of Health and Natural Sciences; Dr. Jacob Massoud, Assistant Professor, School of Business and Leadership; Susan Briski, Adjunct Professor, School of Business and Leadership; Dr. Yu-Ti Huang, Postdoctoral Researcher, Department of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, School of Health and Natural Sciences; Ana Toepel, Graduate Student, School of Business and Leadership; and Marcia Silva, Graduate Student, School of Business and Leadership, the University achieved a 34.59 score from STARS. The ranking was based on education and research, operations, planning, administration, engagement, and innovation.

The objective, data-driven analysis, completed in 2012, helped identify strengths and weaknesses in an effort to meet Dominican’s sustainability goals.
