MacEwan University receives STARS Silver certification
Greater numbers of courses connected to sustainability, green cleaning products, sustainability research and reduced emissions are just some of the many efforts that resulted in MacEwan University being granted STARS Silver certification by the Association of the Advancement of Higher Education.
“Achievement of the STARS Silver rating validates the university’s sustainability efforts and also acts as a baseline to monitor our progress moving forward,” says David Atkinson, president of MacEwan University. “Our namesake, Dr. Grant MacEwan, was ahead of his time in terms of his interest and passion for sustainability, and this passion runs through all the university’s departments, connecting the university to issues of global responsibility, environmental stewardship and social equity.”
