Meet the Sustainability Office
Wesleyan University has been involved in sustainability efforts since the 1980s, when it began a recycling program. The SAGES committee has 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.
Jen Kleindienst began as Wesleyan's first Sustainability Coordinator in July 2012. Jen is passionate about building a more sustainable world and loves putting ideas into action on the Wesleyan campus. She works to coordinate sustainability efforts between students, faculty, staff, and administrators, and create new programs to foster sustainable thinking and acting. Before coming to Wesleyan, Jen worked in the sustainability offices at Tufts University, St. Michael's College, and MIT. Jen holds an M.S. in Environmental Studies from Antioch University New England and a B.A. from Hamilton College.
