A copy of the sustainability course inventory:

Total number of taught courses offered at SFU: 4170 (Derived by taking all SFU graduate and undergraduate courses offered over the past 2 years, less those which are graduate theses, courses used solely for transfer credit, directed studies, and co-op education semesters)

Course inventory was conducted by extracting key words from the definition of sustainability-focused courses and running a search through our curriculum database. The courses found were then verified by faculty members in the appropriate faculties.
