Has the institution adopted one or more sustainability learning outcomes that apply to the entire student body or, at minimum, to the institution's predominant student body?:

Which of the following best describes the sustainability learning outcomes?:

A list of the institution level sustainability learning outcomes:

Total number of graduates from degree programs:

Number of graduates from degree programs that require an understanding of the concept of sustainability:

A brief description of how the figure above was determined:

- Of the three options to identify program-level SLOs, we identified the number of graduates from degree programs that require at least one sustainability-focused course for AY 2018-19. These undergraduate and graduate courses have course descriptions and/or syllabi with SLOs or other text showing connections among environmental, social, and/or economic capital.
- The course and program information was identified by reviewing all programs in the FIT catalog following instructions in the 2.2 Tech Manual. Our Office of Institutional Research tallied the number of graduates from the programs identified with at least one SUS-focused course: Melbourne campus only, fall/spring only, AY 2018-19.
- The information obtained is in the attached file which has two worksheets (WS): a) WS1 lists the programs, their program codes, and at least one required SUS course in that program code; b) For each course number, WS2 lists the different program codes that require the course, the course description, and other information.
- In the attached file, for each program code that was referenced in the SUS-F Program Code tab (WS1), all of the required courses are listed in the column titled "Required SUS course in that Program Code”.
- This file does not include sustainability focused courses offered as electives.
- Program codes are unique numeric identifiers of any explicit academic program (from Ph.D. to Certificate).

Additional documentation to support the submission:

Data includes Melbourne campus only, not Online or Extended Studies. Data sourced from the Office of Institutional Research and the Florida Institute of Technology degree programs' websites.

The university only counted programs that had to take a Sustainability Course as defined by AC-1, academic courses credit. Programs that included courses that included sustainability were not counted in this credit.
