A brief description of the methodology used to determine the total number of courses offered and to identify sustainability course offerings, including the definitions used and the process for reviewing and/or validating the course inventory :

To determine the total number of courses offered, an Excel sheet countaing all the courses taught in 2016, 2017, and 2018 was compiled. Repeated sections of the same course were counted as one single course so duplicates were removed. All the courses were arranged by the course number. Undergraduate course numbers range from 100-499 whereas graduate range from 500-799. The total number of course offerings in the past 3 years was obtained in this manner. For identifying sustainability courses, the department chairs were asked to identify them in their respective departments. If they weren't sure, then the course descriptions for each course in their department was reviewed and then the syllabuses for those courses were reviewed carefully to check whether they have any content related to sustainability.

How were courses with multiple offerings or sections counted for the figures reported above?:
