A brief description of the methodology used to complete the course inventory :

Over the past 3 years, we have been utilizing the course catalog to keep a record of courses on the sustainability website. When a new course is added or courses are dropped, we ensure they are by talking with faculty or department. This began with our first STARS report, when we conducted a survey or courses and research faculty were doing. So now, we are just maintaining a database of all courses and checking on it yearly.


How were courses with multiple offerings or sections counted for the figures reported above?:
Each course was counted as a single course regardless of the number of offerings or sections
