A brief description of the methodology used to complete the course inventory :

The number of departments excludes those in the conservatory and only includes those in the college. We disseminated the Faculty Survey Template and recorded responses, then cross-referenced responses with the course catalog for each department. Follow up conversations and correspondence using SDI categories helped determine if the course was Focused or Inclusive. This list was then sent to the registrar to determine which courses were offered in the 2018-19AY. Tutorials, IS, internships, directed study and "courses" in the conservatory (e.g. ensembles, lessons, etc.) were excluded.

How were courses with multiple offerings or sections counted for the figures reported above?:
Each offering or section of a course was counted as an individual course
