The Office of Sustainability develops, coordinates and supports the aggressive sustainability initiatives at Princeton University. We work collaboratively with our students, faculty, staff, regional and national affairs offices, as well as with our local Princeton community to promote sustainability efforts and practices. With our networking and collaborative efforts, we are also part of a larger professional community promoting sustainability initiatives at other colleges and universities.

For more detail on our department, feel free to explore our oganizational chart or find a team member in our staff directory to the right.
