It reviewed ten areas of impact including: procurement, solid waste, energy and food. Five years later, the Princeton Environmental Institute commissioned undergraduate students to conduct a similar report, assessing changes in practices and policies since the 1995 audit and analyzing the motivations for these changes.

The 1995 audit is available at 1995 audit . The 2000 audit will also be available online or can be requested by sending e-mail to Janet Gruschow or Brooke Jack .
