Has the institution developed a definition of sustainability in the curriculum?:
Yes

A copy of the institution's definition of sustainability in the curriculum?:
By sustainability we mean the ability of physical, biological, economic, social, and/or cultural systems to interact with the environment in ways that can endure for long periods of time, without diminishment of environmental quality or the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Sustainability-focused courses have as their central, core organizing principle the exploration of sustainability, or unsustainability, in particular systems or as concepts. Sustainability-related courses incorporate sustainability as a distinct course component or module, or concentrate on a single sustainability principle or issue, but may not necessarily devote the entire course to this endeavor.

Has the institution identified its sustainability-focused and sustainability-related course offerings?:
