Sustainability in Timothy Dwight College
Timothy Dwight’s Sustainability Liaisons (SLs) facilitate collaboration between Yale’s Office of
Sustainability and TD operations and initiatives. The SLs’ efforts to continually improve TD’s
sustainability center around efficient energy use, waste minimization, events that promote and encourage sustainable practices, and sharing educational content. The work of the TD SLs is guided by TD’s college-specific Sustainability Action Plan . The action plan includes monthly sustainability themes (e.g. food, climate action, environmental justice, etc.) that help inspire different projects. With the support of TD administrators and the Office of Sustainability, the SLs plan events for TDers to enjoy and initiatives to lessen our community’s environmental footprint.
