Does the institution advocate for public policies that support campus sustainability or that otherwise advance sustainability at the municipal/local level?:

A brief description of how the institution engages in public policy advocacy for sustainability at the municipal/local level:

CSUDH staff, faculty, and administration regularly partner with the City of Carson to help influence local policy and research.

A recent example includes CSUDH faculty involvement to support community engagement as part of "An Advanced, Zero-Net Energy Community Plan for the City of Carson, California" report funded by the California Energy Commission. (https://ww2.energy.ca.gov/2019publications/CEC-500-2019-028/CEC-500-2019-028.pdf)

The CSUDH Parking & Transportation Services department participates in ongoing planning and participation in policy discussions around transit planning for the City of Carson in collaboration with Dignity Sports Health Park. Discussions include involvement with the City's bicycle and mass transit route planning as the university is a major hub influencing traffic patterns. Examples of CSUDH's presence in these policy and planning discussions is present in the City of Carson's Master Bike Plan: http://ci.carson.ca.us/content/files/pdfs/planning/BikeMasterPlan.pdf

Does the institution advocate for public policies that support campus sustainability or that otherwise advance sustainability at the state/provincial/regional level?:

A brief description of how the institution engages in public policy advocacy for sustainability at the state/provincial/regional level:

The CSU system as a whole does engage in advocacy at the state level through our Advocacy and State Relations team, and some of these efforts are for sustainability-related legislation.

Any sustainability-related legislation that would directly affect CSU campuses is referred to the Energy & Sustainability Unit (along with any other relevant departments) at the Chancellor's Office, and they provide an analysis and recommendation that ASR uses to determine the CSU’s official position on the bill. The level of advocacy involved will be different for each bill, and can range from an official statement of support or opposition to meetings with legislators to testifying in subcommittee hearings.
