A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the inventory:

A list of courses developed by an ad-hoc faculty work group on sustainability and curriculum, the campus course catalog, and the John Muir Institute for the Environment website’s course list were used to identify and compile a list of courses. That list was then sent to department advisors as well as faculty for review and refinement. UC Davis has not developed a formal definition of sustainability in the curriculum through the campus’ Academic Senate; however, an ad-hoc faculty group has worked on identifying courses with sustainability in the curriculum. For the purposes of this credit, the campus used the AASHE STARS definition.


Does the institution make its sustainability course inventory publicly available online?:
Yes
