Is my institution eligible to participate?

Any college or university may participate in STARS. Other types of secondary, post-secondary and tertiary educational institutions are also welcome (e.g., high schools, professional and technical schools, and adult education institutions).

An institution is defined by having a separate and distinct administration (e.g., president or chancellor). Institutions that are part of a larger system must have an administration that is separate and distinct from others in the system to participate independently.

While STARS is designed for higher education institutions, we also welcome other educational organizations (e.g., schools, museums, or adult education institutions) to participate. If your institution or organization does not meet the above requirements, but you believe that you have a compelling case for participation, please email
