Groups & Project Support

Wesleyan has many student groups that focus on advancing sustainability efforts on campus, in the community, and around the world.  

The Sustainability Office has created an infographic guide to support students looking to launch an independent project, find a student group, or fund an idea.

Internships

The Sustainability Office offers internships for students wanting to promote sustainability on campus. Meet the growing group of interns and Office alumni, too.

The Eco Facilitators are peer-to-peer educators who promote sustainable actions among the student body. EFs are part of a three-semester program managed by the Sustainability Office that includes a student forum designed to equip them with the tools and skills to collaborate with students to encourage behavior changes. Contact ecofacilitators@wesleyan.edu with questions about the program.  New Eco Facilitators are hired each November.

Wesleyan's Resource Center seeks to support, empower, and engage students with underrepresented and marginalized identities. Resource Center internships focus on many issues that intersect with social justice and include the sustainability and spirituality interns, who aim to foster a more cohesive, collaborative, and inclusive community for students involved in spirituality and sustainability on campus. 

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.
