*In 2008 the Institute for Natural Resources (INR) was asked to conduct an inventory of OSU’s sustainability capabilities. The report presents the accomplishments of OSU in education, research, outreach and engagement, and campus operations. The initial course listing is based off the INR report.  View the full report.

Working with the STARS reporting system and a committee of students, faculty and staff, the OSU Sustainability Office has generated definitions of sustainability related and sustainability focused courses and created a tool to evaluate how a course fits these definitions.
