Feet to the Fire
Wesleyan University students, faculty, and staff are constantly exploring and promoting sustainability. F2F is one of a multitude of ways to get involved. Check out some of the other great resources below:
The Sustainability Office serves as a resource for members of the campus community interested in initiating sustainability projects and coordinates student, faculty, staff, administration, alumni, and community sustainability efforts. Additionally, the Sustainability Office evaluates Wesleyan's sustainability progress through STARS (Sustainability Tracking and Rating System), greenhouse gas inventory reporting, and revisions to the Wesleyan Climate Action Plan.
Wesleyan created the College of the Environment in 2009 with a belief in the resilience of the human spirit and a desire to develop a long-term vision of human and ecosystem health. We believe that the high productivity and interdisciplinary nature of Wesleyan's faculty; the intellectual, questioning, activist nature of its students; and the intimate relationship of the faculty-student teaching experience create opportunities for Wesleyan to make significant contributions to re-orienting our nation's and the world's trajectory.
The Sustainability Advisory Group for Environmental Stewardship (SAGES) brings together concerned volunteers from faculty, staff, administrators, and the student body to discuss and take action on sustainability issues, ideas, and projects.
Wesleyan students lead many environmental organizations that seek to address a wide range of issues, from food insecurity to permaculture and ecological farming.
