Yale has a vibrant community of faculty, staff and students engaged in sustainability work—both formally and informally—who will welcome your partnership. The Yale Office of Sustainability is the organizing body for campus-wide sustainability activities. The university has had Sustainability Strategic Plans in place since 2010, with the current plan extending through 2025.
YSE strives to provide leadership for sustainability through engagement with a wide range of partners from the local to the international. We seek to explore new ideas and strategies, and in our YSE Strategic Plan we state that we strive to be a model school at the university, serving as a living laboratory for research, teaching and engagement for sustainability. YSE Sustainability work is led by the Sustainability Committee which is a collaborative group of paid student research assistants, faculty and staff. This group works to implement the YSE Sustainability Action Plan through projects in collaboration with the broader university. If you are interested in engaging with sustainability work at YSE, please reach out to Sara Smiley Smith to learn more.
