SCU's Sustainability Strategic Plan has a goal to expand sustainability across the curriculum. Two objectives related to this goal are:
- Increase the number of courses with a sustainability component to 33% by 2025
- Expose 100% of students to sustainability through their coursework
Each year, the Center for Sustainability inventories prior year course offerings to determine how many sections contained a sustainability component and how many students were enrolled in those sections.
Please note, this inventory is updated annually. To make corrections, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the corrected information.
