SUMMARY

A portion of our student fees go towards an account used for green student-led projects on campus.



IMPACT

Students have a monetary resource to propose projects that they want to see on campus to increase sustainability.



PROCEDURE

The CGIF had been approved by the Board of Regents. It is a part of our student activities fee, each student pays $5 towards it each semester; however, without it many great initiatives would not be around because funding in other forms is hard to come by.



MISTAKES & LESSONS LEARNED

Due to the fact that the fee is comprised of student money, only student led projects are able to be funded by it. At times this can be an issue if students do not set up to see their projects reach completion. 



FUTURE PLANS

Continue to grow and advertise the CGIF to allow all students to be aware of it as a resource and encourage future projects.
