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

The course list was compiled by taking the course list from the previous STARS submission and removing courses that are no longer offered. Additionally, a survey was conducted where faculty self-reported courses that are classified as sustainability focused or sustainability inclusive. Finally, a keyword search was conducted on the UIC course catalog to identify sustainability offerings based on course description. The results from these three methods were compiled into a single course list.

How were courses with multiple offerings or sections counted for the figures reported above?:
Each offering or section of a course was counted as an individual course

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

Courses with multiple sections or offerings were reported as a single course
