A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about employee commuting, including the timeframe for when the analysis was conducted and how a representative sample was reached, if applicable:

An Alternative Transportation Committee was created out of the Sustainability Advisory Council and assisted with the development of questions for a transportation survey. The survey was created by the Department of Sustainability and Benchmarking (S&B) and released for a two week period beginning mid-November 2014. The survey was divided by on and off campus residents to gauge commuting modes and then further divided by student, faculty, or staff. The survey was advertised through social media, campus NewsLink articles and website posting, email, and signage around campus. Data was analyzed by the Department of S&B.

The percentage of the institution's employees that use each of the following modes as their primary means of transportation to and from campus::
