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

To cover all courses offered in one year, all courses offered in Fall 2020, Spring 2021, and Summer 2021 were included in this inventory. All standard course descriptions were reviewed for connections to sustainability.

How were courses with multiple offerings or sections counted for the figures reported above?:
Other (please describe below)

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

Courses with identical sections (course names, numbers, and titles) were counted as one course.

Courses with unique sections and that had distinct section titles and descriptions were counted as separate courses. As an example, the FYS courses are all "FYS 100" but there are dozens of unique sections taught by different faculty/staff. Therefore, they were each counted as separate courses.

Cross-listed courses were counted as one course. Courses that repeat were counted as one course. This is consistent for all courses.
