Abstract/Contents:"Higher education institutions could be at the forefront of research and sustainable practices. Across diverse institutions, theory suggests articulated expectations, social learning, and networks can foster aligned expectations, reflexsive learning, and the function of practice necessary for transformation. Some have found innovative policies focused on recycling and energy use, with sustainability programs that engage students and staff members, as well as a curriculum designed by engaged faculty. However, one area in which higher education lags is the adoption of sustainable campus vegetation. Interviews were conducted on four college campuses across the U.S. with individuals responsible for campus planning, sustainability offices, and facilities/grounds management to understand institutional transformation, specifically adopting low-input vegetation on campus. Results identified a variety of levels of engagement across university organizations, along with distinct approaches to how vegetation on campus was managed. Decision-making authority varied across institutions as well as innovativeness and change drivers, which ranged from individual initiative to student-led campaigns, supporting education and reflexive learning across network actors."
