A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about student commuting:

Data was obtained through a campus-wide transportation survey administered in Fall 2015. The shown results consist of 498 complete responses from students. They were asked to report how they got around in each semester the previous year. While this level of detail supported detailed carbon footprint calculations, mode share was determined using only the reported mode shares for Fall semester. This is consistent with past practice.
