In addition to the program-level learning outcomes of the departments listed above, the Bryan School of Business and Economics adopted "sustainability" as one of the core elements of its mission (see http://bae.uncg.edu/about-bryan/mission/ ), with an attendant requirement that all students in all departments take a course that significantly emphasizes sustainability. The students impacted by this requirement should begin to graduate in 2014-15, when the number of graduates covered by sustainability learning outcomes will increase significantly.
