I would be curious to know whether or not people at other campuses have done any systematic surveys of student environmental attitudes or ecological literacy. We've been doing it sporadically since 2005, with some interesting findings. For example, about 70 percent of our students identify as environmentalists, but about 50 percent of students think their lives are sustainable (which means there's still some education to do). In any case, I'd be interested if you survey your students, and if so, what you've been able to do with the results.
