Director, Office of Sustainability

Ginger Chapman is the Director of the Office of Sustainability, providing leadership and management to ensure the integration of sustainable principles and practices across the university. Prior to her current role, she served as the Director of Facilities Sustainable Initiatives, supporting units within Facilities to achieve goals set out in the first Yale Sustainability Strategic Plan (2010-2013).

Chapman has been a key participant in many of Yale’s sustainability initiatives over the years. As Director of Facilities Planning & Construction at Yale School of Medicine, her work to “green” laboratory renovations positioned her to lead the committee that created Yale’s “Sustainable Design Requirements,” which were adopted in 2009 and continue to guide Yale’s sustainable design and construction practices.

She was a member of Yale’s Advisory Committee for Environmental Management, the committee that spurred Yale’s university-wide focus on sustainability and led to the creation of the Office of Sustainability in 2005. Ginger is a registered architect with a Masters of Architecture degree from Yale University School of Architecture.
