Focused/Related Courses by Department

Sustainability Course Inventory by Department for Luther College

This inventory is based on a survey conducted in March 2009.  Faculty were asked if any courses they taught dealt with sustainability.  If they said yes, they were asked to rank how important sustainability was to the course's objectives, and how much class time was spent on sustainability.  A course is defined as sustainability-focused if faculty consider sustainability extremely or very important to course objectives, and 21-100% of class time deals with sustainability.  A course is defined as sustainability-related if faculty consider sustainability extremely or very important to course objectives but only deal with sustainability for 0-20% of class time, or if they consider sustainability moderately important to course objectives and 0-100% of class time deals with sustainability.
