Green efforts earn HCC national recognition

Written by 

Haywood Community College has received a silver rating through the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System (STARS). STARS, which was developed by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, is a transparent framework for colleges and universities to gauge progress towards sustainability.

It is used throughout the United States and Canada. The possible ratings range from bronze and silver to gold and platinum. So far, no college or university has yet achieved a platinum rating.
