Total number of graduates from degree programs:
9,635

Number of graduates from degree programs that require an understanding of the concept of sustainability:
5,740

A brief description of how the figure above was determined:

Using the complete list of SJSU degree programs, including all minors, bachelors, and masters degrees and certificates, the number of programs 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 that was identified in AC-3 or AC-4 or either (1) a learning outcome pertaining to sustainability listed in the SJSU Program Assessment, or (2) a sustainability-focused 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.
