In April of 2010, Memorial University conducted a survey to gather information on transportation practices and issues for employees and students of the St. John’s campus. Separate surveys were developed for staff/faculty (including separately incorporated entities) and students because there are different transportation issues facing these groups. For example, faculty and staff are guaranteed parking permits if requested but students must enter a lottery for parking permits.
A total of 716 people responded to the faculty and staff survey and 2,452 to the student survey.
Both surveys were administered by the Memorial University Sustainability Office and were available online through a link to Survey Monkey on the Memorial University website (www.mun.ca). Invitations to participate were circulated to university employees through the employee Newsline listserv and to students through the student listserv. Paper copies were distributed to Facilities Management staff without regular access to computers.
Results were obtained from Survey Monkey and analysed in consultation with the Centre for Institutional Analysis and Planning of Memorial University.
