A list of the institution level sustainability learning outcomes:

Total number of graduates from degree programs:
2,286

Number of graduates from degree programs that require an understanding of the concept of sustainability:
872

A brief description of how the figure above was determined:

We went through each of the three criteria (1) identified degree programs with a sustainability-focus as listed in AC 3 and AC 4; (2) identified degree programs that have adopted sustainability-focused learning outcomes; and (3) identified degree programs that require all students in the program to take at least one sustainability-focused course. If the degree program met one or more of these three criteria, they were included in our figure above.

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness provided a list of the number of degree program graduates during Academic Year 2018-19, and number of graduates by program & concentration. The sum of graduates from degree programs during the 18-19 Academic Year that meet one of the three criteria listed above is included here. See attachment to view calculations and specific criteria.
