Earning a Sustainability Course Attribute


The SUSL/C course attribute will be 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. 

Why get a course attribute?

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 sustainability issues throughout the course.
  • Sustainability—Complete (SUSC): Course content identifies and describes the relationship between the course topic, equity, economy, and environmental dimensions.
