Globally Recognized for Sustainability Achievements
The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education is the leading organization for advancing sustainability across the globe.
Cal Poly is among six California State University campus partners to share global recognition for their efforts to reshape how the system teaches its nearly half a million students about climate change.
The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education — the leading organization for the advancement of sustainability in colleges and universities across 48 states, a U.S. Territory, nine Canadian provinces and 20 countries — bestows its prestigious awards on the institutions and individuals that help lead higher education to a sustainable future.
In 2022, AASHE announced 12 winners from 430 entries in five categories. The CSU entry received the coveted Campus Sustainability Achievement Award.
“They are raising the bar and evolving what sustainability in higher education looks like,” said AASHE Executive Director Meghan Fay Zanier
Cal Poly was honored for its collaborative effort with five other CSU campuses — Chico, Humboldt, Monterey Bay, San Marcos and Stanislaus — to establish the CSU Faculty Learning Community in Teaching Climate Change and Resilience.
