STARS v1.2

University of California, Riverside
ER-10: Undergraduate Program in Sustainability

Status Score Responsible Party
Complete 4.00 / 4.00 John Cook
Director of Sustainability


Institution offers at least one sustainability-focused undergraduate major, degree program, or equivalent. 

The degree program does not have to include sustainability in its name to count for this credit.  Environmental Studies programs, for example, count as long as the program covers the social, economic, and environmental dimensions of sustainability.  A program that focuses exclusively on environmental or social issues, however, would not be sufficient to earn this credit. 

Concentrations within a major (e.g. a concentration on sustainable business within the business major) do not count for this credit. 


This credit applies to all institutions that have undergraduate majors, academic programs, or the equivalent.


Institutions earn 4 points for having at least one program that meets the criteria outlined above.    Partial points are not available for this credit. 



Report on current program status and offerings.  Planned degree programs or degree programs that have been canceled are not eligible for this credit.
