Sustainability In the Curriculum Survey
Campus Sustainability Council; Student Learning Task Group
Overview of the Survey
This survey was conducted to find out where sustainability is currently being taught in the Luther curriculum in order to help the task group identify opportunities to “make sustainability a part of every student’s learning experience.” The goal was to create as complete an inventory as possible, so the task group chose a brief, quantitative survey in order to maximize the response rate. A copy of the survey follows this report.
The survey was sent to all faculty via email on March 31, 2009. A reminder was sent on April 7.
