In October 2018, Mohawk Sustainability completed a thorough analysis of all courses to determine how many courses were related to sustainability.

Methodology:
1. Develop a living document where all findings on sustainability courses (related or focused) were integrated together.
2. A sustainability course is a course in which the primary and explicit focus is on sustainability and/or on understand or solving one or more major sustainability challenge
2a. A course that includes sustainability is primarily focused on a topic other than sustainability, but incorporates a unit or module on sustainability or a sustainability challenge, includes one of more sustainability-focuses activities, or integrates sustainability issues throughout the course
3. Data collection, input and review for identified sustainable program-courses. Data collection was conducted using academic calendars and program of study course website pages.
