Additional documentation to support the submission:

Learning outcomes were identified as sustainable through the use of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals and the Triple Bottom Line approach (people, planet and profit) to sustainability. If a degree program lists a learning outcome that captures the intent of producing graduates that will make the world more resilient in a combination of social, economic or environmental ways, it was identified as sustainable.

The University at Buffalo does not require learning outcomes for its Graduate degrees.
