Has the institution developed a definition of sustainability in the curriculum?:
Yes

A copy of the institution's definition of sustainability in the curriculum?:

Sustainability is the quality of a system such that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainability requires the reconciliation of environmental, social, and economic concerns.


Has the institution identified its sustainability-focused and sustainability-related course offerings?:
Yes

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

In 2011, UofL updated its electronic system for listing new courses and revising existing courses (the Course Inventory File) to include codes for sustainability-focused or -related courses. Until now, the data has primarily been used for internal administrative purposes, but we are working toward making this information easily available to students who will be able to use these criteria in searching the catalog.
Prior to 2011, UofL's sustainability course inventory was manually conducted through an evaluation of: course catalog, course descriptions, and/or faculty surveys on the courses being taught.


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