A list or sample of the sustainability learning outcomes associated with degree, diploma or certificate programs (if not included in an inventory above):

Using the complete list of SJSU degree programs, including all minors, bachelors, and masters degrees, the number of program with a least one identified sustainability learning outcome were identified and listed. A degree program with an identified sustainability learning outcome was defined as one with either (1) a learning outcome pertaining to sustainability listed in the SJSU Program Assessment, or (2) a sustainability-focused or -related course that is required in order to graduate from the degree program. Using this list, the number of students graduating from these programs was obtained with the help of the SJSU Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Analytics.

The website URL where information about the institution’s sustainability learning outcomes is available:

Working in conduction with the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Analytics (IEA), the STARS team produced a list of degree programs (i.e., minors, BA, BS, MA, MS) that included one or more student learning objective focused on sustainability and had the IEA run a query on how many students had graduated from one of the programs in the '14-'15 academic year. These numbers were then compared to the total number of graduates for the '14-'15 academic year.
