Suggest a Question or Provide Feedback for AASHE's 2017 Sustainability Staffing Survey
Happy New Year! Since 2008, the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) has conducted a periodic survey of campus sustainability staff to examine the nature of sustainability positions at colleges and universities, and provide insights into salaries, funding, supervision, job satisfaction, challenges and more. A great deal has changed since we released the 2015 report, so we’re excited to launch a new survey in a few weeks and share the findings later this year.
To qualify for the survey, you must be in a paid sustainability position in a higher education institution or college/university system office anywhere in the world. We are collecting information for positions with broad responsibility for campus sustainability, as well as those that focus on a particular area of sustainability (e.g., energy, recycling, curriculum, communications). Faculty respondents whose jobs include an ongoing administrative role in sustainability at least part-time can also take this survey.
Key changes to this year’s survey include:
- Higher education sustainability staff outside of the United States and Canada are now welcome to participate.
- To promote consistency and accommodate international reporting, all salary and budget information must be reported in U.S. dollars.
- Student enrollment information should be reported in full-time equivalent enrollment (FTE) rather than headcount.
We'd like your help in making this survey and report as useful as possible. Please provide feedback for improving existing questions, ideas for new questions, and suggestions on how to filter, analyze and present the information. You can access a Public Comment version of the survey here to provide comments and view an outline and detailed draft of questions.
What else would you like to know about higher education sustainability staff positions? Which types of filters would be most useful? Let us know in the comments below or in the public comment draft by Monday, January 23. To be mindful of respondents' time, we can't promise to incorporate every suggestion, but all feedback will be considered.
