A brief description of the methodology used to complete the course inventory :

The course inventory from the 2019 STARS report was a starting place, and the courses were verified to have been offered in 2021. The Office of Analysis, Assessment and Accreditation generated a list of classes added since 2019 with course descriptions as candidates for inclusion. If inclusion of sustainability was not evident in course descriptions, the course was either verified with a syllabus or excluded. Faculty also had the opportunity to self-identify their courses as either sustainability focused or inclusive with descriptions. If faculty identified the course, it was included.

How were courses with multiple offerings or sections counted for the figures reported above?:
Each course was counted as a single course regardless of the number of offerings or sections

A brief description of how courses with multiple offerings or sections were counted:

Each course number was included once. Cross-listed courses between departments are listed as one class. However, courses that were cross-listed as undergraduate and graduate were listed separately in order to generate the requested totals for this credit.
