Personal Sustainability Commitment

Members of Wesleyan's Environmental Organizers' Network, in conjunction with the Sustainability Advisory Group (SAGES), developed the Wesleyan Personal Sustainability Commitment.  This commitment is an individual sustainability pledge, accessible through the employee and student electronic portfolio, that all members of the Wesleyan community are encouraged to sign.

This commitment suggests eleven small actions that we can take as individuals to collectively make a difference and asks the entire Wesleyan community to commit to at least five of these actions. You can revise your commitment at any time through Portfolio.
