Webinar: Implementing Sustainability Literacy and Culture Assessments for AASHE STARS

May 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

If you’re seeking ways to pursue or enhance your STARS AC-6 and EN-6 assessments related to sustainability literacy and culture, we invite you to attend an upcoming presentation and discussion session. A recent PhD graduate will provide an overview and share findings from her dissertation focused on measuring and modeling the relationships between sustainability literacy, culture, and behavior. During this session, you’ll learn about findings from a diverse set of institutions including an R1 university, a community college, and an HBCU. Participants will have the opportunity to collaborate in testing the survey measures at their own institutions. This session is designed to engage those who are actively interested in contributing to the research and assessment efforts related to sustainability literacy and culture. By participating, you can earn STARS credits and contribute to a larger effort aimed at streamlining literacy and culture assessments—a critical need identified by many US universities.
Please join us for this informative session and collaborative opportunity.
