The University of Richmond should commit to achieving the Gold Standard rating by the AASHE Campus Sustainability Index by 2024. Gold Standard for Green Spiders includes eight proposals that taken together, will move UR up from our current silver rating to gold. This volume also includes short summaries of the sustainability programs of eight of the top ten most sustainable liberal arts colleges in the nation. The eight student authors of these chapters completed their works as part of the Environmental Studies Senior Seminar course, the capstone course for Environmental Studies majors.
