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

In the summer of 2014, an electronic survey was distributed to all Emory faculty members, requesting whether or not courses taught by faculty from 2010-2013 were sustainability courses, courses that include sustainability, or neither. The data collected and reported here represents courses taught between Fall 2010 and Spring 2013.


How did the institution count courses with multiple offerings or sections in the inventory?:
Each course was counted as a single course regardless of the number of offerings or sections

Though Oxford College courses are included in the publicly available inventory, these courses are not included in this report for STARS because Oxford is considered outside of the institutional boundary for STARS.
