Student Sustainability Engagement

Quick Guides to Sustainability 

The Sustainability Office has created quick guides for undergraduate and graduate students that share the basics of sustainability at Wesleyan.

Student Groups

Wesleyan has nearly 20 student groups, projects, and programs that advance sustainability efforts on campus, in the community, and around the world.  

Wesleyan Green Fund

The student-run Wesleyan Green Fund supports campus sustainability projects through a $15 per semester opt-out fee on all undergraduate students.  The Fund accepts student, faculty, and staff proposals and chooses projects  based on their ability to make Wesleyan a more sustainable place. The Fund’s members work with project applicants to tailor projects and provide financial and managerial support. 

Eco Facilitators Program

The Eco Facilitators are peer-to-peer sustainability educators who promote sustainable lifestyle habits on campus. EFs are part of a year-long program that includes a fall student forum designed to equip them with the tools to collaborate with first-year students to encourage behavior changes.  The second class of 15 EFs are in Bennet, Clark, 200 Church, WestCo, Nics, Butterfield A, and Butterfield C.  Contact ecofacilitators@wesleyan.edu with questions about the program.
