SCIP Datasets Workshop

This workshop will focus on two recently prepared datasets which include the responses from more than 6000 U-M students, faculty, and staff on a broad range of questions regarding sustainability awareness and behavior. Questions covered topics such as travel and transportation, waste prevention and conservation, the natural environment, climate change, food, engagement, and key geographic and demographic variables.

The datasets are the result of the Sustainability Culture Indicators Program (SCIP), which emerged from the Community Awareness theme of the U-M Campus Sustainability Integrated Assessment. More on Integrated Assessment and SCIP – including the Year 1 Report and copies of the questionnairesThis workshop is for any U-M faculty member or graduate student interested in working with the datasets. The data could provide interesting opportunities for scholarly investigation, dissertation work, and applied inquiry in support of campus initiatives.

The workshop will provide:
• An overview of how and why the survey instruments were designed
• Key findings from the Year 1 SCIP report
• Examples of how university staff have been using SCIP data to inform their work
