Has the institution developed a definition of sustainability in the curriculum?:

A copy of the institution's definition of sustainability in the curriculum?:

We use the guidelines for sustainability education as set forth by the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development http://www.ithaca.edu/sustainability/curriculum_undecade.php

Has the institution identified its sustainability-focused and sustainability-related course offerings?:

A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the inventory:

In an earlier course inventory round, using the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development criteria, the Provost sent out an email to all faculty requesting them to disclose if their course content covered those elements and further, if the sustainability content focus comprised 2 weeks or more of classtime. Additionally, for the 2011 and 2013 course inventory, sustainability staff conducted a careful review of the complete course catalog to review course descriptions. Based on these two approaches, a complete list of sustainability focused and related course offerings was completed.

Does the institution make its sustainability course inventory publicly available online?:
