This year marks the 10th anniversary of the founding of Princeton University's Office of Sustainability, the hub that supports, monitors and connects initiatives across campus focused on cultivating positive global and local impacts in the environment. 

Led by founding director Shana Weber, the office responds to global challenges through investigating the campus as a scalable, solutions-based demonstration site. The office mission is to cultivate an ethos of sustainability on campus by bridging academics, operations and campus life.
