Abstract Using self-reported data from over 12,000 students, staff, and faculty members, this study aims to quantify the effectiveness of various sustainability information sources on the awareness and behavioral changes of participants. Exploratory factor analysis of 12 communication sources resulted in three clusters: news sources, blogs and social media sources, and local sources of information. All three clusters had positive impacts on the sustainability awareness of students, staff, and fa...
