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

A survey was administered to the entire MC Faculty through an online survey tool requesting information regarding sustainability courses and courses that included sustainability and research related to sustainability. The definitions of the categories of sustainability courses and courses that include sustainability that were provided in STARS were provided to the faculty in the survey. The data was self-reported by the survey respondents and then the STARS team reviewed the data to look for double-postings in categories and collected course descriptions to verify their inclusion in the results. On rare occasions academic program coordinators were contacted to assist with course descriptions and/or finalized decisions of courses in this listing.
