The SUSL/C course attribute is awarded to courses integrating key sustainability concepts.
Sustainability course attributes are applied to courses that integrate fundamental concepts of sustainability including equity, economy, and environment. Courses from across campus have Sustainability-Limited and Sustainability-Complete attributes.
What are the course attributes?
- Sustainability—Limited (SUSL): Course content incorporates a unit or module on sustainability or a sustainability challenge, includes one or more sustainability-focused activities, or integrates two of the three sustainability concepts throughout the course.
- Sustainability—Complete (SUSC): Course content identifies and describes the relationship between the course topic, equity, economy, and environmental dimensions.
Why get a course attribute?

- Recruit students to your major;
- Have your undergraduate-level course be counted towards the Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Certificate in Sustainability;
- Have your graduate-level course be counted towards the Interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate in Sustainability;
