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

We reviewed the 8000+ course catalog from the 2019 school year. We did keyword searches from the Sustainable Development Goals to initially narrow down the list. Upon narrowing the list the course were individually identified as either sustainability inclusive or focused. If the course had keywords from more than one category of sustainability (environmental, social, and/or economic sustainability) then it was considered sustainability focused, if the course only had one category it was considered inclusive.

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

A brief description of how courses with multiple offerings or sections were counted:

Both graduate and undergraduate offerings of a course were counted separately.
