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

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

A “sustainability focused course” is a course which is primarily focused on sustainability, or a course that addresses social wellbeing, economic prosperity, and ecological health, and/or the interconnectedness of social, economic, and environmental issues.

A “sustainability related course” is one that is primarily and explicitly focused on one or two, but not all three, of the issues of social wellbeing, economic prosperity, and ecological health.

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:

Concordia College has identified courses that incorporate sustainability by completing an inventory, that involves distinguishing between sustainability-focused and sustainability-related courses. The original method used to complete the inventory involved a Sustainability in the Curriculum survey sent to all full-time continuing faculty members in October-November 2010. The inventory survey was successful, as the results came in with numerous responses. However, in order to evaluate the information further, and to provide an update, in summer 2013 an intensive evaluation of all courses offered at Concordia College was done through evaluation of the course catalog, with questions to specific faculty member instructors, as necessary.

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