A Sustainability Across the Curriculum Qualtrics Survey was administered by email on September 11, 2012. The purpose of the survey was to request full time and adjunct instructors to identify courses that were Sustainability-focused and Sustainability-related as well as to gauge interest in the upcoming Sustainability Across the Curriculum Professional Development course. 219 faculty members opened the survey and 106 completed it.
