Our methodolgy for providing information in this sections was to extract all courses from our online registration system. We created a report that ran all of our courses for the dates of 3/1/2012 - 12/31/2014. All duplicates were removed. We then reviewed all courses for sustainability themed courses. The Director of Program, Sionna Grassbaugh and Program Coordinator Lisa Aldon were the main staff involved.
