Has the institution adopted one or more sustainability learning outcomes that apply to the entire student body or, at minimum, to the institution's predominant student body?:

Which of the following best describes the sustainability learning outcomes?:

A list of the institution level sustainability learning outcomes:
The institution level sustainability learning outcomes are part of the sustainability component of the general education requirements adopted in 2014. The 147 students listed above have completed the sustainability general education requirement for academic year 2016-2017 and it is anticipated that that percentage graduating with the sustainability requirement will rise to nearly 100% as existing students cycle through old general education requirements and new students adopt the new requirements.

The new sustainability learning outcomes are as follows:

• Think critically regarding the array and implications of alternative sustainability definitions.
• Discuss sustainability within the context of ethical decision-making on earth.
• Describe why actions to achieve sustainability are complex and contentious.
• Express how failure to achieve sustainability has implications for human survival and planetary life quality over time.
• Engage in informed judgments about sustainability and problems as socially responsible citizens


Total number of graduates from degree programs:

Number of graduates from degree programs that require an understanding of the concept of sustainability:

A brief description of how the figure above was determined:
Using data from the Office of Institutional Strategy and Effectiveness, we coded each program (certificates, associates, undergraduate majors, undergraduate minors, and graduate degrees)as sustainability-focused or not, and determined the number of graduates for each program between 2018-2021. We were not able to differentiate overlap between students' undergraduate majors/minors, so our number of "total graduates" is higher than our actual number of graduates due to this double counting. It is possible that some students had both major and minors that were sustainability focused, and others had one or the other. Since we could not parse that out, we went with the higher number as our base.
