The Sustainability Literacy Assessment was developed in partnership with the sustainability coordinator, the campus sustainability committee, the dean of students, and the associated student body. The assessment will be sent out for the first time in Spring 2018 and repeated again in Fall 2018.
We plan to transition to an 'entrance' exam for first years and an 'exit' exam for fourth years.
