Total percentage of students (graduate and undergraduate) that use more sustainable commuting options as their primary means of transportation:

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

Data sources: snapshot of 2017-2018 school year parking pass data; Fall 2017 factbook enrollment statistics.

Calculation: (Total students - Commuter lot student parking pass total) / total students

The campus is highly residential, and is surrounded by other residential areas that are not owned by the university. Most students walk or bike to campus. Those that don't almost always purchase a commuter parking pass, so the ratio of commuter parking passes sold to total students enrolled is a conservative estimate of how many students drive a single-occupant vehicle. We suspect that many of these students are carpooling or using the campus shuttle for most of their commutes, but it is not considered in this data because it has not been measured.

The percentage of students that use each of the following modes as their primary means of transportation to get to and from campus::
Percentage (0-100)
Commute with only the driver in the vehicle (excluding motorcycles and scooters) ---
Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means ---
Vanpool or carpool ---
Take a campus shuttle or public transportation ---
Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped ---
