"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

Has the institution developed a definition of sustainability in the curriculum?:
No

A copy of the institution's definition of sustainability in the curriculum?:
---

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

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

Office of Sustainability staff first collected all courses listed in the Course Catalog. Each course was then cross-referenced with Marquette’s Snapshot of the Schedule of Classes to determine which courses were actually offered during spring 2012, summer 2012 and fall 2012. Using the STARS Technical Manual’s Identifying Sustainability Courses examples as templates, staff then looked at each course description to determine if they met the STARS example criteria for sustainability-focused or -related. STARS course examples were used because Marquette has not officially adopted its own definition of sustainability in the curriculum.


Does the institution make its sustainability course inventory publicly available online?:
Yes
