New Jersey Higher Education
Partnership for Sustainability

NJHEPS was established in 1999 by the New Jersey Council of Presidents, The New Jersey Higher Education Partnership for Sustainability (NJHEPS) is an organization created to transform the higher education community to practice sustainability and contribute to the state, region and world’s emerging understanding of sustainability, through teaching, research, outreach, operations, and community life.

Institutions of higher education are responsible to lead society by example and action. Through demonstrating the connections between sustainability and the courses of study that students pursue in higher education, colleges and universities can effectively educate future workers, citizens and leaders, providing them with the skills and knowledge to advance sustainability in their future work and decisions. Campus operations, actions and policies which promote sustainability serve as shining examples what can effectively be done in this pursuit. Identifying, nurturing and expanding partnerships with like-minded constituencies, among institutions and communities cement the foundations of viable sustainability.

The Executive Committee of NJHEPS formed a special committee which is dedicated to generating and upholding a consistent and timely strategic plan that is ratified by the Executive Committee and carried out by all involved parties. The planning committee worked to determine appropriate objectives, and to develop concepts as well as action plans that will help define our journey as an organization committed to sustainability in higher education over the next five years.
