A brief summary of additional ways the institution collaborates with other campuses to advance sustainability :

LMU collaborates with AASHE in trying to accomplish the STARS assessment in order to share our institution’s ideas.
LMU’s collaboration with CURC is very vital to how we address our participation in recycling. A staff member was one of the founders for this coalition and thus has a big influence in how we conduct our business in recycling.
LMU’s collaboration with Sustainability in Faith Based Higher Education is mainly done by attending conferences and sharing our knowledge and technique via a Google group. The main goal of this collaboration is to provide a network of ideas for everyone to learn from.
