Summary or Abstract : An increasing number of colleges and universities in the United States are restructuring courses and research programs to focus on long-term use and maintenance of our natural resources and protecting these resources for future generations. Previous research and assessment on environmental sustainability and higher education has focused on the role of the university in sustainable development, improving environmental track records of institutions, and environmental conservation and sustainability on campus. The purpose of this study was to develop a framework for evaluation, using criteria and indicators, for academic programs in higher education that are focused on environmental sustainability. An evaluation framework is necessary if academic programs are focused on the issue of environmental sustainability is to remain viable into the next century. The first objective, to develop a framework for evaluation, was met through a participatory process involving academic program stakeholders. The second objective, to test the applicability of the framework for evaluation, investigated a diversity of academic programs through nine case studies of land grant, regional, and private colleges and universities across the U.S. This study demonstrated that educational stakeholders are aware of the need and interested in evaluating success of academic programs aimed at addressing the issue of environmental sustainability.Specifically, five criteria categories (Maintenance and Enhancement of Academic Program, Curriculum Appropriate to Goals of Environmental Sustainability, Activities and Experiential Hands-on Learning Opportunities, Community Engagement, Institutional Commitment to Environmental Sustainability) and the associated strategic indicators were determined and used as a framework for academic program evaluation. These criteria and indicators serve a number of purposes by providing a set of key terms that can be used in future educational program evaluation or assessment, a framework against which programs can evaluate their effectiveness, and a means for making changes and adapting, or to resolving areas of weakness..
