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

A survey was sent to all faculty members asking them to self-identify courses they taught that met the criteria for a Sustainability Course or a Course that Includes Sustainability (in-depth definitions and Loyalist-specific examples were provided). They were also asked to provide a brief description of how the course met the definition and when it was last taught. A 50% response rate was achieved. The data was then analyzed and vetted by the College's Sustainability Coordinator.

Each course was counted as a single course regardless of the number of offerings or sections
