The supportive document below represents the sustainability focused courses per degree program and the amount of students who have graduated in said degree programs. Please note that we are one of the AASHE Centers for Sustainability Across the Curriculum, and began training faculty on the incorporation of sustainability in teaching, research, and service prior to the 2016 designation from AASHE.
