A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the course inventory:
In January, a scan of the UWinnipeg course calendar was conducted to determine how many courses had sustainability content. The initial criteria was that a course had to mention the term 'sustainability' in an explicit and meaningful way in the course description. This scan turned up 35 courses that were sustainability focused or related.
In the second phase of the project, contacts was made to all 50 University departments to either confirm or expand the findings from the course calendar. This process took a month through March and April, and turned up 105 courses that were sustainability focused or related (this includes the 35 identified through the course calendar).
Gaps were identified in this data; therefore it was updated in January 2015 for the final STARS submission.
