Sustainability Plans

Wesleyan University is committed to building a sustainable planet.  Climate change and a rapidly changing world provide us with the impetus to take greater steps toward a sustainable future.  We seek to be an institution on the forefront of sustainable change, one that promotes environmental and social sustainability in everything that we do.  Sustainability is not an end goal, but an ongoing process. 

Wesleyan adopted the Sustainability Strategic Plan (SSP) in May 2022, which builds on the lessons learned from the 2016-2021 Sustainability Action Plan (SAP). The SSP builds a roadmap toward a sustainable future by establishing broad goals and objectives over the coming decades in the areas of carbon neutrality, curricular integration, and engagement of our Wesleyan and Middletown communities.
