A brief description of how the assessment was developed:

The Office of Sustainability developed a survey using other surveys from other institutions as a reference. They specialized the survey for the needs of our institution.

A brief description of how the assessment was administered:

The survey was administered electronically via an e-mail sent to all students through the President's Office in the fall of 2010 and a second survey was sent out in the spring of 2011 to determine how perceptions of sustainability had changed over the Year of Sustainability.

A brief summary of results from the assessment:

A majority of respondents found it important that CSB/SJU become a leader in sustainability and the environment. Slightly less than half of the student respondents attended a Year of Sustainability event. 91% of student respondents used the Link as their primary of mode of transport between campuses. A large majority of respondents expected to learn more about sustainability while at CSB/SJU. The Year of Sustainability brought a substantial increase in the awareness of the Offices of Sustainability on campus.
