Abstract: This article tackles the problem of greening university campuses of higher edu-cation institutions in Palestine. The paper concentrates on finding the adequate greening catego-ries and key performance indicators to be used to assess the sustainability and green of higher education Institutions HEI. Each indicator has been weighted based on the opinion survey filled by academic experts from the different Palestinian universities. The weights of these indicators have been normalized to come up with a category score and a then a total score of the greening of the HEI. Eventually, a Go-Green integrated model is developed to form an initiative for any higher education institution wishes to enter into this sustainability race. Many steps and activi-ties are suggested to turn any university to a green one. Through implying the Elasticity and Plasticity approach, it is possible to relate the level of green actions to social behavior. The impact of these sustainability aspects is reflected on higher education by implementation on university campus greening.
