A brief description of the formal sustainability course designation program:

Does the institution designate sustainability courses on student transcripts?:

Additional documentation to support the submission:

Sustainability designations are not included in the course catalog as the designation is by the instructor, not at a course level.

The Academic Subject Certificate in Sustainability is described on Page 163 of the catalog. Sustainability Focused courses are listed in Class Availability and on the STARS student registration system with an "S" preceding the course title and are accompanied by descriptive language in the Comments, and this designation appears in the student's transcript.

S-related courses have descriptive language in the Banner class listings but do not appear on their transcripts. The web link shows an example of how S Designations are listed for registration purposes.
