Information on our sustainability initiatives

Wesleyan tracks our sustainability progress in several ways.  We complete annual greenhouse gas inventories, have completed a Climate Action Plan (and subsequent revisions), and are now participating in the AASHE STARS program.  Wesleyan's STARS data will be collected over the 2012-2013 school year and will be available in Fall 2013.

If you have a data request, please read the following before making a request:
