Additional documentation to support the submission:

Butler University has two grant programs that award money to faculty for the purpose of developing new courses or updating preexisting ones. The Holcomb Awards Committee (HAC) gives grant money for programs in the sciences and the Butler Awards Committee (BAC) awards money to other programs in the College of Liberal Art and Sciences along with programs in all other colleges. We decided to not these awards committees did not qualify for points towards this credit because they do not directly sustainability courses specifically. However, either of these awards committees could be utilized for the development of a sustainability course.
