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

We first established a time period for data gathering which was Fall 20/Spring 21 course offerings. The Registrar provided a list of all courses offered during that academic year. Courses were reviewed for whether they were sustainability focused or inclusive using the definitions in the technical manual. Course descriptions and syllabi were used to make this determination. Courses were reviewed according to the parameters in the technical manual and we removed the following:

Directed seminars
Enrollments of 4 or less
Independent studies
Performance classes
Theses classes

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:

Courses with multiple sections were counted as separate courses.
