A brief description of the methodology used to complete the course inventory :

Using CIP codes we were able to label courses as sustainability-focused and sustainability-inclusive.

Sustainability courses are those courses in which the primary and explicit focus is on sustainability and/or on understanding or solving one or more major sustainability challenge (e.g. the course contributes toward achieving principles outline in the Earth Charter)

Courses that include sustainability are those courses that are primarily focused on a topic other than sustainability, but incorporate a unit or module on sustainability or a sustainability challenge, include one or more sustainability-focused activities, or integrate sustainability issues throughout the course.


How were courses with multiple offerings or sections counted for the figures reported above?:
Each course was counted as a single course regardless of the number of offerings or sections

A brief description of how courses with multiple offerings or sections were counted:

Courses were counted each semester they were offered during the two year time period. From Fall 2018 to Summer 2020
