Sustainability Office

Wesleyan's Sustainability Office coordinates sustainability efforts on Wesleyan's campus. Through the sustainability coordinator and five student interns, the Sustainability Office develops projects and programs that reduce energy and waste and engage the Wesleyan community, with goals of building a more sustainable campus and moving towards carbon neutrality.  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.
