The website URL where the inventory of course offerings with sustainability content is publicly available:
A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the course inventory:

In 2014-2015, 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 through an online survey or with a private interview with the GA.

How did the institution count courses with multiple offerings or sections in the inventory?:
Each course was counted as a single course regardless of the number of offerings or sections
