The Princeton Review is pleased to continue its partnership with the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education ( AASHE ) to streamline the reporting process for institutions that choose to participate in AASHE’s Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS®). The intent of this initiative is to reduce and streamline the amount of time campus staff spend tracking sustainability data and completing related surveys.

For our 2018–19 collection, The Princeton Review will accept data in two ways:

  1. Data can be submitted directly through our own Review Data Set Form F: Student Life. This form is distributed annually to each school’s designated data contact. For more information on who we work with at your school please email us at surveysupport@review.com with the subject line: Green College Survey Contact
  2. Data may be shared via the AASHE STARS® Reporting Tool by following the process outlined in AASHE’s Data Sharing Instructions. The specific STARS credits of interest to The Princeton Review are listed below.

In either case, the deadline for submitting data is March 1, 2019.

Should you have any questions please feel free to contact us at surveysupport@review.com.
