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

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

Sustainability-focused courses at Denison University explore relationships between humans and the environment. Working from a variety of perspectives, these courses explore and analyze at least two types of systems (i.e. cultural, social, economic, political, and/or ecological) and their ability to meet the needs of future generations. These courses purposefully connect actions with outcomes in their relation to environmental issues.

Sustainability-related courses at Denison include at least one clearly identified, four week-long unit within the semester that meets the above definition.


Has the institution identified its sustainability-focused and sustainability-related course offerings?:
Yes

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

A spreadsheet was developed for courses offered within the Environmental Studies Program that would meet the definitions by the Environmental Studies Program Manager and vetted by faculty members. Additional courses from other departments/programs were identified by Campus Sustainability Committee members based on course descriptions.


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