Wesleyan University has been actively promoting sustainability since the 1980s, when it began a recycling program. Through the efforts of the Wesleyan Sustainability Office, Sustainability Advisory Group (SAGES), and the campus community, Wesleyan has expanded its sustainability efforts, which now include include a climate action plan and many sustainability policies and projects. Please look through the links to the left to learn more about SAGES, the Sustainability Office, and our specific initiatives: climate action, engagement and events, energy, waste reduction, green building and grounds, transportation, purchasing, and water.
We've just received a STARS (Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System) Silver Rating following our year-long evaluation, put out by AASHE (Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education)! We're proud of our efforts and are looking forward to using our STARS data to set new goals. Learn more about what we're doing to promote sustainability on the STARS website.
