Has the institution developed a definition of sustainability in the curriculum?:

A copy of the institution's definition of sustainability in the curriculum?:

ESF’s definition of a sustainability-focused course: This type of course has sustainability as the course goal, and identifies one or more measurable learning outcomes that are explicitly focused on the topic of sustainability.

ESF’s definition of a sustainability-related course: This type of course has a primary goal other than sustainability, but incorporates at least one module or activity that produces a measurable learning outcome that is explicitly focused on the topic of sustainability.

Has the institution identified its sustainability-focused and sustainability-related course offerings?:

A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the inventory:

The list of sustainability courses was the result of a survey sent to faculty by a committee that sought to evaluate sustainability at ESF as part of the College's reaccreditation effort. The courses from this survey were counted and reported by the same committee. The count of courses listed as sustainability-related and sustainability-focused assumes that any faculty that did not respond to the survey do not teach any sustainability courses. The total number of courses at ESF was the result of a graduate student effort to count courses within the course catalog.

Does the institution make its sustainability course inventory publicly available online?:
