Attitudes of Undergraduates Towards Environmental Sustainability
University of Delaware
This study serves to analyze if there is a difference in the environmental concerns among undergraduates at the University of Delaware based on year in college, gender, and/or major. An electronic survey was designed to evaluate students' attitudes, behaviors, values, and awareness. In Fall 2008, 1500 undergraduate students at the University of Delaware (also referred to as UD in this report) were drawn from a random sample of environmental and non-environmental majors. The survey was sent out and remained open for a month, at which time a response rate of 34.8% was received. The results will be useful in determining what issues need to be emphasized across campus and if demographics are correlated to students' environmental concerns.
