Abstract:This study is qualitative in nature and is a single exploratory case study examining the environmental sustainability and strategic planning initiatives of one campus, the University of Illinois at Chicago, of a multi-campus institution with a total of three campuses in the system, the University of Illinois. The purpose of this study was to discern which components of the institution’s strategic planning process initiate and maintain enduring environmental sustainability policies, practices, programs, and initiatives at a medium-sized research institution in the Midwest, situated in a large city. The conceptual framework for the study utilized the principles and underlying assumptions of the identification of components of enduring environmental sustainability policies, practices, programs, and initiatives developed by the Association of University Leaders for a Sustainable Future (ULSF) Sustainability Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ), as well as the features that distinguish strategic planning within institutions of higher education outlined George Keller’s (1983) Academic Strategy: The Management Revolution in American Higher Education. Future research is needed.
