This category recognises sustained and successful activities to improve the performance of tertiary education institutions, faculties and buildings over a number of years and offers a whole institution approach.
To improve social responsibility and environmental performance through a whole institution approach strategic sustainability activities through four main areas must be achieved:
Leadership and Governance
Estates and Operations
Learning, Teaching and Research
Partnership and Engagement
Applications are only likely to be successful if they provide considerable quantitative evidence on the nature of the improvements made and also demonstrate a causal relationship between activities undertaken and improvements achieved based on the four areas. Initiatives must have been running for at least five years.
Judges will be looking for key areas where it is felt that the institution is distinctive compared to its peers, and provide supporting evidence. Tangible evidence of high level commitment, and its incorporation into management procedures, will also carry great weight with the judges.
The Winning entry will be put forward for the International Green Gown Award for Continuous Improvement: Institutional Change.
