A sample of the questions related to sustainability culture or the website URL where the assessment tool is available:
1) What types of sustainability initiatives do you know are happening at Lewis University.

3) What interests you the most in regards to sustainability?
4) Do you currently display behaviors that result in a more sustainable life?
5) In which ways have you been involved in helping your local community?
6) Can you think of ways sustainability projects could be funded?

A brief description of how representative samples were reached (if applicable) and how the cultural assessment is administered:
Based on what their major, year and where they live.

A brief summary of results from the cultural assessment:
Individuals who were environmental science majors had more sustainability values, but ones that were not environmental majors realized that more sustainability values then they originally thought. Over time depending on the inflow of new environmental science students you would see a trend. In the future I want to send out a survey to the whole campus to see where they stand on their values.
