Does the institution conduct an assessment of sustainability culture (i.e. the assessment focuses on sustainability values, behaviors and beliefs, and may also address awareness of campus sustainability initiatives)?:

Which of the following best describes the cultural assessment? The assessment is administered to::
A subset of the campus community or a sample that may not be representative of the entire community

Which of the following best describes the structure of the cultural assessment? The assessment is administered::
Without a follow-up assessment of the same cohort or representative samples of the same population

A brief description of how and when the cultural assessment(s) were developed and/or adopted:

The culture assessment was developed through a brain-storming session with the Office of University Sustainability Team. The team selected questions that would give insights to what campus projects and programs the population is familiar with and what areas they would like to see more initiatives in. The questions went through this cycle a few times until finalizing on the current version. It was decided that this version would be sent out as a pilot and get feedback.

A brief description of how representative samples were reached (if applicable) and how the cultural assessment is administered:

The assessment was sent via an online survey tool to students, faculty, and staff in the FIU School of Environment, Arts, and Society. It was only sent out and opened for a brief period to get feedback so that the assessment can be amended to be sent out to larger campus populations in the coming academic year.
