TRU is the first Canadian college or university to earn the platinum STARS rating twice, and one of two Canadian post-secondary institutions and 12 in the world to earn the highest possible rating from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education. STARS — the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System — measures and encourages sustainability in all aspects of higher education.
STARS is a transparent, self-reporting framework for colleges and universities around the world to measure sustainability performance. TRU received the platinum rating for the second time in the fall of 2022 — one of only six universities world-wide to do so. In May 2018, TRU earned its first platinum rating, following gold in 2015 and silver in 2011.
