Meet the Sustainability Office

Wesleyan University has been involved in sustainability efforts since the 1980s, when it began a recycling program.  The SAGES committee strengthened Wesleyan's sustainability efforts through the creation of a climate action plan and numerous projects and programs.  With the creation of the Sustainability Office in 2012, Wesleyan has further demonstrated its commitment to promoting true sustainability.
