Our institution gives all incoming Freshman and Senior students during their time in college. The Freshman do the survey in the beginning of their year and the seniors do the survey before they graduate. This was we can analyze the trends in the students through
their academic years.
A brief summary of results from the assessment(s):
The most recent results will be analyzed once the survey is conducted later this year.
A survey conducted before and after the CSB/SJU Year of Sustainability (Fall 2010-Spring 2011) gave these results. 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.
