A copy of the sustainability course inventory:

This inventory was compiled by building upon the previous inventory through surveying faculty teaching relevant courses using the qualitative snowball approach and reviewing course descriptions in the course catalog. In the overall course inventory and the sustainability course inventory, all courses are counted for each department they are offered in, meaning that cross-listed courses are counted for each department they are offered in (example: BI 340/ES 340 – Introductory Ecology is counted as 2 courses).
