The listing is a first step on the way to developing a Certificate in Sustainability.
The University of Hawai‘i at Hilo has designated 29 courses as sustainability focused (S-Focus), where most of the course is all about sustainability, or sustainability-topic related (S-Related), where a portion of the course will immerse students in sustainability topics. S-ready courses are just entering the designation process.
The UH System is working on different models for a Sustainability Certificate and the S-Focused courses will count towards that. UH Hilo will be working on a model for a Sustainability Certificate that complements the campus curricula.
