Sheridan College (Ontario) requested that AASHE Staff correct a mistake in this reporting field for the reason specified below.Previous Value: 5 None
Explanation: The reporting field value has not changed. I am providing additional information to clarify the inconsistency of the number of academic departments in our report to satisfy the STARS submission review. This report has inconsistency in the number of academic departments reported in various credits due to differences in activities across departments. Although Sheridan College has 6 academic "Faculties," one of these Faculties is the Faculty of Continuing & Professional Studies that offers continuing education classes and does not conduct research. The number of Faculties that have degree programs and conduct research is 5. For example, IC-3: Academics and Demographics states that Sheridan College has 6 academic departments, but we only count 5 departments in AC 1 and AC 9. The courses offered through the Faculty of Continuing & Professional Studies are covered under EN 11: Continuing Education to prevent double-counting.
