Assistant Professor/Campus Sustainability Coordinator
Developed by Environmental Science faculty, informed by surveys of peer institutions. Adopted Fall of 2016.
Assessment has been administered using our learning management system to students enrolled in Ecology and the Environmental Challenge (ES 300) at the start and end of the course. The ES 300 course is a required core course for all students in the campus program, thus reaching the entire student body of on-campus students at some point in their undergraduate career. The assessment is also administered to all online undergraduate students in the equivalent ES 100 course. Graduate online students may not all be reached by the sustainability literacy assessment, but the predominance of full time equivalent students are assessed through the ES 300 and ES 100 required courses.
From the first iteration (results from one cohort fall 2016), modest improvement in scores post-ES 300 (15% higher scores, from approximately 60% to 75%).
