STARS v2.2

Susquehanna University
IN-38: Sustainability Course Designation

Status Score Responsible Party
n/a 0.00 /

Criteria

Institution formally designates sustainability courses across multiple departments in its official course catalog or listings.

This might take the form of an identifying symbol or code to help students distinguish sustainability courses from other courses (e.g., a sustainability filter in an online catalog or a sustainability tag in a printed catalog). Identification of courses offered by a sustainability-focused academic unit (e.g., courses offered by a Sustainability Studies department and denoted with a “SUST” prefix) is not sufficient in the absence of course-level designations that encompass courses offered by multiple departments.


Applicability

This credit is optional and may be earned by any institution that meets the criteria. 


Scoring

An institution earns 0.5 bonus points when courses are formally designated in the institution’s official course catalog. Partial points are not available.
