During the last decade, there has been growing interest and research in environmental assessment. One environment that has received special attention is the university environment. Since environments are seen to relate to a person's growth and development, it follows that environments that maximize the match between students' needs, goals, and aspirations and university resources enhance student life and lessen dysfunctional stress. Environmental design, then, is an appropriate target for mental health professionals. One factor that has inhibited the environmental design process is the absence of a practical theory. This paper offers a 10-step environmental assessment model that is built on the natural processes students actually use as they map their environment. Included in the paper are examples of some instruments that may help the environmental design process. (Author)
