A brief description of the methodology used to complete the course inventory :

The registrar's office pulled a report to determine the total number of graduate and undergraduate courses offered across the university. To identify the sustainability course offerings a course inventory was sent out to all faculty members, who reported if they instructed sustainability-focused and or sustainability inclusive courses. Through this identification of sustainability courses they will then be flagged in the system so that in the future, this information as well as additional enrollment data will be able to be pulled automatically as a report.

How were courses with multiple offerings or sections counted for the figures reported above?:
