Greening Princeton seeks to improve the relationship between the University and the environment by first identifying pertinent environmental issues and then creating task forces to develop solutions.
Greening Princeton is unique because of its emphasis on collaboration with university administrators, and because it is made up of both graduate and undergraduate students. Greening Princeton initiates projects by contacting the most appropriate administrator(s) and listening to their concerns and constraints to see how we can make our ideas work with their mission.
By bringing in new ideas, assisting with background research, increasing student support for initiatives, and/or advocating for funding, Greening Princeton can greatly accelerate the process of improving and implementing environmentally friendly and socially responsible policies. We have found that building strong relationships not only increases the chances of accomplishing our goals but also increases the responsiveness of the administration and individual administrators to environmental initiatives over the long-term.
