This post is related to STARS, AASHE's Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System.

We're in the process of developing a survey form for our academic faculty/staff to "fill in the blanks" for the STARS survey section on curriculum. We have the San Diego State form but it doesn't necessarily address ALL the questions that need to be answered for the STARS survey. Wondering (hopefully) if there's anyone out there that has already developed a survey form for curriculum ?

It’s great to hear that you’re using the resources in the Reporting Tool! Thanks to SDSU for providing the example curriculum survey that is available.

As you’ve pointed out, additional resources would be helpful. I hope that other institutions will consider sharing their surveys either through this forum or by sending them to stars@aashe.org.

There are three places I can suggest looking for more information:

  1. University of Colorado-Boulder recently submitted. You may find ideas in their public report.
  2. University of British Columbia has provided definitions for sustainability-focused and sustainability-related courses on their website for sustainability courses.
  3. The AASHE Resource Center has several webpages dedicated to sustainability in curriculum.

I hope this is helpful and I hope that others will provide any materials they have found useful!

Greetings David,

I am a faculty member at West Chester University of Pennsylvania, and we are currently trying to take an inventory of our classes to determine which as "sustainability related" and "sustainability focused." We were thinking of providing faculty with a questionnaire/rubric regarding what is covered in the course and then use that to determine if the course is "sustainability related" or "sustainability focused." Based on your comment it sounds like you all were attempting to do the same, I was wondering if you could provide any further detail about what faculty were asked in order to make this determination.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Sincerely,
