AC-3: Undergraduate Program

Status Score Responsible Party
Complete 1.50 / 3.00 Sarah Johnson
Sustainability Program Analyst
Institute for Sustainability


Institution offers at least one:


  • Undergraduate-level sustainability-focused minor or concentration (e.g. a concentration on sustainable business within a business major).

To count, programs must concentrate on sustainability as an integrated concept, including its social, economic, and environmental dimensions.

Extension certificates and other certificates that are not part of academic degree programs do not count for this credit; they are covered in the Continuing Education credit in Public Engagement.


This credit applies to all institutions that have undergraduate majors, academic programs, or the equivalent.


Institutions earn the maximum of 3 points available for this credit for having at least one sustainability-focused degree program or the equivalent for undergraduate students. Partial points are available. An institution with no sustainability-focused degree program that has at least one sustainability-focused minor, concentration or certificate earns 1.5 points (half of the points available for this credit).



Report on current program status and offerings at the time of submission. Planned degree programs or degree programs that have been canceled are not eligible for this credit.
