A brief description of the methodology used to complete the course inventory :
Sustainability-focused courses have "sustainability" or "sustainable" in the course title or as a keyword in the course description within the context of addressing ecological and socio-economical challenges. Sustainability-inclusive courses were counted if a course description states that a course includes a unit or module on sustainability, addresses a sustainability challenge, involves one or more sustainability-focused activities, or integrates sustainability challenges, issues, and concepts throughout the course.

In future course designations, Prescott College will add a system feature that allows faculty members to designate whether or not their courses are "sustainability-focused" or "sustainability-inclusive." This will enable us to track the sustainability courses offered at our institution with greater accuracy.

How were courses with multiple offerings or sections counted for the figures reported above?:
Each course was counted as a single course regardless of the number of offerings or sections
