A brief description of the formal sustainability course designation program, including the methodology used to identify and approve courses for inclusion:

There is a list of credit classes that include a sustainability component on the Student Sustainability Hub. PCC also offers a Sustainability Focus Award. The Sustainability Focus award recognizes students who have completed a broad range of sustainability related courses. The award is designed to encourage students to learn to see environmental issues from multiple perspectives and to increase their experience in this multi-disciplinary topic. The earning of this focus award can demonstrate to potential employers and transfer colleges that the student has a deep and broad understanding of sustainability issues.
