The data provided was sourced directly from the End of Program Review 2009-2010: Sustainability in Programs report published by Evergreens Office of Institutional Research and Assessment. The data was collected through an annual survey distributed to all faculty teaching in the undergraduate program at the end of each academic year. The 2009-2010 survey data do not include data for summer courses or courses offered in graduate programs, many of which also focus on sustainability. Of the 175 undergraduate programs offered in 2009-2010, 132 participated in the annual survey review, with 130 complete responses. The report allows faculty to rate the extent to which their programs focused on sustainability, choosing from: Extensively, Moderately, or A Little. 19.2% of the 130 programs included were reported as focusing Extensively on sustainability, and were included in this credit. Courses identified as focusing Moderately or A Little on sustainability have been included in the ER Credit 7: Sustainability-Related Courses. The number of courses featuring sustainability in the undergraduate programs exceeds that required by AASHE to earn the sustainability education credits, therefore the graduate and summer programs have not been included in order to utilize the End of Program Review 2009-2010 report as the major reference source for this credit.
Total programs responded: 130
Total programs addressing sustainability: 69.2 %
19.2 % Extensively
24.6 % Moderately
25.4 % A Little
