USFQ is currently involved in community education programs. Such courses train community members in sustainability topics and help build knowledge about the subject for free and open to the public. We do not have certificate courses under sustainability criteria therefore part 2 will not be completed. We assumed that programs that fell into this category had to do with improving people’s life through health, maintaining small community identity and sustainable development, energy and water, biodiversity or conservation planning and programs. We left out 5 programs that are strictly related to biology because there was no evidence of sustainability criteria. Additionally there is a lack of information regarding if any of the other programs might have covered sustainable topics but these were not mentioned in the program content.
