Sustainability Across the Curriculum

Sustainability Curriculum

As a polytechnic university, Cal Poly has long made sustainability a centerpiece of its educational purpose. That dedication is reflected in the campus's Sustainability Learning Objectives (SLOs) articulated as essential educational components for all students in all majors. Momentum is building on campus, as evidenced by achieving a STARS Silver Rating in 2017 from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE). This page assembles the various programs and services that CTLT offers campus educators in support of enhancing and expanding sustainability in and across the curriculum in support of the SLOs and continued pursuit of advanced STARS ratings.
