This credit was marked as Not Pursuing so Reporting Fields will not be displayed.

Currently, we do not have any programs that achieve this objective. We do have the infrastructure to enact a campus-wide climate literacy outreach effort via the Green Ninja "Energy Tracker" curriculum: http://greenninja.org/teaching-resources/gnerp/getting-started/

The scoring criterion allow for a "representative sample" which could be collected via the Provost's or President's office and/or the Department of Institutional Data and Analytics.

We also discussed developing a Qualtrics survey that could be distributed via mobile devices to all freshman during orientation. This survey would distribute and collect data on sustainability and increase awareness of sustainability programs and enrollment in these programs. This survey could also be distributed to all incoming transfer students via the 100w programs. 100w is the only course that all upper-division students must take at SJSU, making it an ideal point for re-enforcing sustainability among native SJSU students and incoming transfer students.
