Shana Weber has been appointed president of the New Jersey Higher Education Partnership for Sustainability (NJHEPS) effective July 1
NJHEPS is committed to advancing sustainability across the New Jersey higher education community through cross-sector partnerships, teaching, research, outreach, operations and community life.
"I am honored to join the leadership team at NJHEPS and look forward to working with our many partners across the state," said Weber, who is the director of the Office of Sustainability at Princeton University. 
"Students, staff, faculty and facilities personnel on campuses across New Jersey are dedicated innovators and together we can be a positive force for accelerated action in partnership with government, environmental, community and business leaders," Weber said. "I am confident that NJHEPS can make a difference in the Garden State and be an example for the nation at large."
“I'm confident that Shana's leadership will continue to bridge the gap between institutions, disciplines and communities, not only to move the bar on sustainability but to make sustainability part of every day life for its citizens," said Michael Kornitas, former NJHEPS president and director of Sustainability and Energy at Rutgers University. 
Weber received her bachelor's degree in Zoology from Ohio State University and doctorate in environmental science from Indiana University's School of Public and Environmental Affairs. She currently serves on the board of trustees for Sustainable Princeton, the municipal nonprofit organization. She is a member of the Ivy-plus Sustainability Consortium, and executive host of the Northeast Campus Sustainability Consortium. 
Weber's current research activities include collaborative applied research among higher education sustainability offices, and climate-change driven population dynamics of the American pika across the American West.
