Sustainability Learning Objectives
Cal Poly defines sustainability as the ability of the natural and social systems to survive and thrive together to meet current and future needs. In order to consider sustainability when making reasoned decisions, all graduating students (meaning all graduate and undergraduate) should be able to:

- Define and apply sustainability principles within their academic programs
- Explain how natural, economic, and social systems interact to foster or prevent sustainability
- Analyze and explain local, national, and global sustainability using a multidisciplinary approach
- Consider sustainability principles while developing personal and professional values
- Academic Senate Resolution 688-09 (PDF), approved by President Baker June 22, 2009

In April 2004, President Baker signed the Talloires Declaration, a 10-point action plan. This plan commits Cal Poly to sustainability and environmental literacy in teaching, theory, and practice.
