IN-38: Sustainability Course Designation
|0.50 / 0.50||
A brief description of the formal sustainability course designation program:
Sustainable UMass has partnered with the UMass registrars office to designate or "tag" courses in SPIRE (the online UMass course listings) as "Sustainable" courses. Students are able to filter courses by the "Sustainability Understanding" designation (SPIRE is password protected - see attached PNG file).
This list is pre-populated each semester if a designated course is listed continually. To designate new courses, members of the Chancellor's Sustainability Advisory Committee make requests to registrars to add new courses to the designation list. All green designated courses are also populated in the Sustainable UMass Sustainability Class listing online (link below).
