A list of the institution level sustainability learning outcomes:

Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILO) highlight the knowledge, skills, and abilities all students are expected to have upon graduating from CSULB.

The following ILO are supportive of sustainability.

CSULB graduates will be:
- Critically and ethically engaged in global and local issues
- Knowledgeable and respectful of the diversity of individuals, groups, and cultures;


Total number of graduates from degree programs:
10,097

Number of graduates from degree programs that require an understanding of the concept of sustainability:
742

A brief description of how the figure above was determined:

The Office of Sustainability reviewed the department-level learning outcomes of every academic program to identify those that included sustainability-related student learning outcomes. We then contacted the university’s Institutional Research & Analytics (IRA) department to request the total number of graduates (undergrad and grad) from the academic year 2018-19 and the total number of graduates (undergrad and grad) from programs that were identified as containing sustainability-related learning outcomes.

A total of 7 undergraduate and graduate (where applicable) programs with sustainability learning outcomes were identified and the number of graduates from those programs was used to tabulate the reported number.
