Welcome to the Cal Poly Sustainability Catalog

Cal Poly defines sustainability as the ability of natural and social systems to survive and thrive together to meet current and future needs. As Cal Poly educates future leaders, it also recognizes the benefits of promoting a sustainable lifestyle and culture.

In signing the Talloires Declaration on April 23, 2004, President Baker emphasized Cal Poly’s commitment to sustainability. The Talloires Declaration is an action plan committing universities to sustainability and environmental literacy in teaching and practice. This web site takes one step toward fulfilling that commitment by providing a catalog of courses which teach in a meaningful way at least two of Cal Poly's Sustainability Learning Objectives.

You may either browse through an alphabetical list of courses or search the database by course title or GE Area.

This database is a result of collaboration between the Academic Senate Curriculum Committee, the Renewable Energy Institute, the Center for Sustainability in Engineering, the College of Engineering and the Academic Programs Office. Instructors wishing to submit a course to the Sustainability Catalog should email the Chair of the Academic Senate Sustainability Committee.
