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

The attached document Final Courses offered UnderGrad and Graduate 2018-2020" Lists all undergraduate and graduate courses for the last 3 years through Spring 2020.

I went to each course, downloaded the syllabus and found if it was focused, or inclusive. Many did not qualify because while their were a sustainable topic, I did not include unless the syllabus specified if it was meant to convey a sustainable learning outcome or at least a lecture section on the sustainability of the topic. for example, Women's Studies might be a sustainable topic but there was no section that identified it as a lecture or inclusive of meaningfully directed at sustaining women's studies. I counted the number of times each course was offered over the last 3 years. If it was offered 10 times, I counted ten courses.

I counted all seminars, directed research, doctoral studies, internships, comprehensive study, master's thesis, and Special topics.

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:

If a 10 sections of a course were offered, I counted it as 10 courses.
