A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the inventory:

In 2012-2013, a GA in the Sustainability Office created a questionnaire for each academic department to complete. In most cases, the GA met with a department's faculty to explain the definition of sustainability and ask instructors if any of their courses were sustainability-focused or sustainability-related. In other cases, the department chair was provided with a copy of the STARS definition of sustainability and the department chair talked to instructors themselves to complete the questionnaire.


Does the institution make its sustainability course inventory publicly available online?:
No
