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

Faculty members met with each department to describe the current STARS definitions for sustainability courses and courses that include a sustainability component, and to request that individual faculty members document those courses they teach that (a) fit under one of these categories, (b) was actually taught during the previous academic year, and (c) had 4 or more students enrolled in the class. Each course was only counted once, regardless of the number of times it was offered during the year. Courses excluded from the inventory included internships, practicums, workshops, thesis, independent studies, courses jointly taught with the Univ. of Pittsburgh, and "one-time only" courses.


How were courses with multiple offerings or sections counted for the figures reported above?:
Not applicable; no courses with multiple offerings or sections were included
