A brief description of how the figure above was determined:
We used the first criteria, "identified graduates from degree programs with a sustainability-focus", as these were the same programs listed in AC 3 and AC 4 and this was easy data to compile. To gather the figures, the Office of Institutional Research, Analytics, and Reporting provided a link to a website with the number of graduates from all degree programs during Academic Year 2021-2022. (Review it at http://pine.humboldt.edu/anstud/cgi-bin/filter.pl?relevant=degreesall_U.out (toggle between grad / undergrad at top of page). For this credit, we did not also include graduates from programs that have adopted sustainability-focused learning outcomes and/or those that require successful completion of a sustainability-focused course, because this activity was deemed too time intensive.
