CEJS Highlights

Campus Commuting Survey a HUGE success!!

Thank you so much to the 3,037 Seattle University community members who took the campus commuting survey this November! The response rate was amazing: 30% of all students and 51% of all Faculty and Staff responded! The data we collected will be pivotal in the planning of future transportation and sustainability programs, tracking of university members' commuting habits, and the estimation of SU's annual carbon emissions.
