Has the institution developed a definition of sustainability in the curriculum?:

A copy of the institution's definition of sustainability in the curriculum?:

Sustainability focuses on dynamic relationships among the environment, economy, and society. Sustainability encompasses how environmental and ecological issues are intertwined with economic, social, and health wellness, and how human society’s actions interconnect with these issues. Being sustainable requires addressing these issues so as to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Has the institution identified its sustainability-focused and sustainability-related course offerings?:

A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the inventory:

A list of possible sustainability-related and sustainability-focused courses was compiled from the CSUCI course catalog. The original list of possible sustainability courses was separated by major. The courses were then separated by department chair. The list of possible sustainability courses was then sent to the appropriate department chair. The chair simply defined each of the listed courses as sustainability-focused, sustainability-related, or neither.

Does the institution make its sustainability course inventory publicly available online?:
