Faculty now have the ability to assign Sustainability-focused and Sustainability-related attribute codes to courses. This enables students to filter and identify classes with sustainability content and is very useful to students pursuing the Undergraduate Certificate in Sustainability.
The Mascaro Center is working to fill this reservoir with the broadest and most complete listing of sustainability options available to our students. At this time, we ask that faculty consider whether their course(s) meets the sustainability targeted content below and if so, to please take the critical step of submitting your course for review and approval within Curriculog.
Sustainability-focused: A sustainability focused course addresses sustainability as an integrated concept throughout, highlighting the interconnectivity between all three pillars: social, economic, and environmental dimensions.
Sustainability-related: A sustainability related course or program incorporates sustainability as a distinct component, or concentrates on the interconnection between two of the three pillars: social, economic, and environmental dimensions.
- Course material is connected to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal(s) (SDGs).
- Addresses sustainability as an integrated multidisciplinary concept, highlighting the interaction and tradeoffs between ecological, social and economic systems.
