The purpose of this paper is to test the validity of the curriculum auditing tool Sustainability Tool for Auditing University Curricula in Higher Education (STAUNCH), which was designed to audit the education for sustainability and global citizenship content of higher education curricula.

The Welsh Assembly Government aspires to incorporate sustainability across all sectors and required an audit of all higher education curricula within Wales.

The paper also discusses responses to the auditing process, findings at an institutional and national level and proposes recommendations for improvements.
