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

To complete the course inventory a review of all the departments courses that were offered during the summer, fall and winter semesters of the 2014/15 year were completed. This was done by using the online registration system at Carleton through Carleton Central in order to make a list of the courses that are offered in at least one of the three semesters. Afterwords emails with the list of courses were sent to the departments that had sustainability courses or courses that had an aspect of sustainability within them to be double checked to ensure that course did provide sections on sustainability.
