Total number of graduates from degree programs (i.e. majors, minors, concentrations, certificates, and other academic designations):
6,697

Number of students that graduate from programs that have adopted at least one sustainability learning outcome:
4,873

Percentage of students who graduate from programs that have adopted at least one sustainability learning outcome:
72.76

Do the figures reported above cover one, two, or three academic years?:
Three

Does the institution specify sustainability learning outcomes at the institution level (e.g. covering all students)?:
Yes

Does the institution specify sustainability learning outcomes at the division level (e.g. covering particular schools or colleges within the institution)?:
Yes

A list or brief description of the institution level or division level sustainability learning outcomes:

The institution offers two courses in all its undergraduate programs:
1. Environmental Management: After this course about sustainability, students can understand the structure and function of ecosystems, the relationships of human beings with the environment, and the impacts human activities generate on natural resources. Additionally, they can propose actions to avoid or minimize such impact on the ecosystems in any scenario based on environmental management models.
2. Science, Technology, and Society: After this course that covers the topic of sustainability, students can understand the interrelationships between science and technology in different historical and social contexts. As a result, they can conduct a critical analysis of the positive or negative effects of science and technology projects on natural and social environments


Does the institution specify sustainability learning outcomes at the program level (i.e. majors, minors, concentrations, degrees, diplomas, certificates, and other academic designations)?:
Yes

A list or brief description of the program level sustainability learning outcomes (or a list of sustainability-focused programs):

The institution has two academic programs (one undergraduate, one graduate) focused on sustainability:
1. Bachelor of Environmental Science: Environmental Science is a multidisciplinary academic field oriented toward the planning and the sustainable use of natural resources and the environment.
2. Master of Sustainable Development: This program is a response to the warnings scientists from different fields publish every year about the impacts of our current development model. Economic growth is implicit in sustainable development, but, unlike traditional models, the latter also seeks environmental protection and social wellbeing.


Do course level sustainability learning outcomes contribute to the figure reported above (i.e. in the absence of program, division, or institution level learning outcomes)?:
Yes

A list or brief description of the course level sustainability learning outcomes and the programs for which the courses are required:

All the students in our undergraduate programs need to pass two courses (Environmental Management and Science, Technology, and Society) to graduate.
