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

In order to complete the course inventory, our team contacted department heads in departments that were identified as offering sustainability courses or courses that include sustainability. The heads of each department were given descriptions of what qualifies as a sustainability course or course that includes sustainability as outlined by STARS. Given the provided criteria, department heads responded by identifying and providing names and course numbers for both graduate and undergraduate courses in each category. Our team then searched official online course references to provide the descriptions for each course.

The office of enrollment management assisted in providing the information for the number of courses offered by the institution. Data for total number of courses offered by the institution is based off of the two academic years of 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 (including courses offered over the summer of 2019 and 2020).


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
