The Sustainability Office was provided a list of courses taught during the most recent academic year. Sustainability staff reviewed the course description for each course, and from that description determined if sustainability issues were covered. In some cases, students who took the course knew that sustainability case studies were used in courses, that the course description may not have reflected.
