In my research I walk through the methods I chose to conduct my mixed method qualitative research with. In addition, I will include the sources I have found, where I obtained them from, and the importance that these sources held in my research. This will lead into my findings on sustainability at Marquette University and other higher education institutions. My findings include what committees and efforts Marquette has made towards sustainability. I will then work to connect my various sources to form a comprehensive understanding of Marquette's sustainability as related to my chosen categories: curriculum, co-curriculum, and extra-curriculum. The research works to show where sustainability is and is not found in these three categories at Marquette University. The paper will conclude with my proposals to the shortcomings that I found in relation to Marquette' sustainability efforts.
