Selection Criteria

We are looking to honor individuals who have contributed to building a culture of sustainability at SCU. The following are criteria the Office of Sustainability will consider when making our selections. - Lasting impact vs. single event or instance. We favor actions that will have a lasting impact on the campus community. - Sustainability-focused* vs. sustainability-related**. Actions that are sustainability-focused will be considered over actions that are sustainability-related. Multiple actions may be combined for this point, so long as together, they show the nominee has approached sustainability from economic, social, and environmental perspectives. *sustainability-focused actions include all three sustainability elements (justice, economics, and environment), showing others how different dimensions of sustainability relate to and support each other in theory and/or practice, addressing complex global issues. **sustainability-focused actions include one or two sustainability elements (justice, economics, and environment). - Depth vs. breadth. Actions that are harder to make will be favored over surface-level actions. Actions that reach many people may be favored over actions that reach a few, so long as there is a sense of lasting impact among those affected. - Temporal boundary. Though we may consider actions that have happened in the past, the Champion Awards seek to celebrate achievements in the 2012-13 academic year. - Campus Sustainability. We will more strongly consider projects/initiatives to change the culture on campus. Community-based projects are important, and will be considered alongside campus-based projects, though not as strongly for these awards. We may choose to highlight noteworthy achievements that were done off-campus.
