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

Data represents courses taught (not those that were listed then cancelled), counted by individual section.

Courses inventoried that *include* sustainability consist of a number of individual sections modified by the respective instructor. Other sections of the same course will not include sustainability in the same deliberate way; thus the calculation by course section.

The inventory reflects the number of sections of a specified course taught during the academic year, as compared to the total number of course sections taught in Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 combined.
