Are you in the midst of AASHE STARS reporting and feeling overwhelmed? Are you confused about how to even get started? Are you ready to tackle STARS 3.0? We understand how challenging this process can be, and your NJHEPS community members are here to help.


No matter where you are in your sustainability reporting journey, we invite you to join us for our first NJHEPS AASHE STARS Workshop. NJHEPS board members will kickoff the event by sharing best practices and challenges from their recent STARS submissions. Then we will split off into small groups for a peer-to-peer problem solving workshop. You can learn more about AASHE STARS here.


This event is open to anyone affiliated with a New Jersey-based college or university with an interest in sustainability reporting. It is free and lunch will be provided. Parking will be available in the Green Lot and Yellow Lot. Guests who are not affiliated with Rutgers will need to register their vehicles here.
