ER-5: Sustainability Course Identification
Has the institution developed a definition of sustainability in the curriculum?:
A copy of the institution's definition of sustainability in the curriculum?:
In order to report on other STARS Curriculum credits, the definition of sustainability in the
curriculum should distinguish between courses that focus or concentrate on the concept of
sustainability throughout the course and courses that relate to an aspect of sustainability or
include sustainability as part of the course.
•Sustainability-focused courses concentrate on the concept of sustainability, including
its social, economic, and environmental dimensions, or examine an issue or topic using
sustainability as a lens.
•Sustainability-related courses incorporate sustainability as a distinct course
component or module or concentrate on a single sustainability principle or issue.
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:
Three UALR Sustainability Committee members who are also faculty (Landrum, Coop, & Mitchell) reviewed course descriptions in the undergraduate catalog and determined if each class was sustainability-focused, sustainability-related, or not applicable.
Does the institution make its sustainability course inventory publicly available online?:
