The website URL where information about sustainability in continuing education courses is available :

Karen Dickerson, the Associate Director of the School of Adult and Continuing Education, was reporting on the Fall 2010 term. According to the course schedule for Adult Studies and Continuing Education there is a course that is supposed to be taught by J. Nail on Energy & Environment, but that is the only course in a sustainability-related field. There is no way of knowing if that course will actually be filled with enough students.
