Which of the following best describes the cultural assessment? The assessment is administered to::
A subset of the campus community or a sample that may not be representative of the entire community

Which of the following best describes the structure of the cultural assessment? The assessment is administered::
Without a follow-up assessment of the same cohort or representative samples of the same population

A brief description of how and when the cultural assessment(s) were developed and/or adopted:
The assessment was distributed among students enrolled in S-Designation (SF Designation and SR Designation classes) post-course completion. An S-Designation course online survey was created in Fall 2020 and disseminated to S-Designation course participants post-course completion. The survey aims to gauge students' understanding of sustainability concepts post-S-Designation course completion and their interest in these topics. It was given out only at the end of the course. No assessment was given at the start of the course so knowledge comparison is not possible.
The “ S-Designation course survey” survey was created on Survey Monkey and disseminated to course participants online.
