Fifty-four academic departments at Colorado State offer at least one sustainability course and/or course that includes sustainability. Fifty-eight academic departments offer courses at any level.
Sustainability courses are indicated in our inventory and have a primary and explicit focus on sustainability. Some of these courses are endorsed by our School of Global Environmental Sustainability (SoGES), which entails a detailed review and approval process by the SoGES Curriculum Development Committee.
All courses that include sustainability are indicated on our inventory and are courses that have a primary focus other than sustainability but incorporate or integrate sustainability challenges, activities, service learning, research, and/or case studies. As a land grant institution, many of these courses offer field experience and/or hands-on research or laboratory learning opportunities. Our methodology followed both the STARS technical manual as well as our campus definition of sustainability, which includes environmental, social, and economic considerations.
