SUMMARY

This is a fund that is set aside specifically to finance sustainable and environmentally friendly initiatives around campus. Emphasis is for student's use this fund but a request can come from any department.



IMPACT

So far the fund has been able to finance projects like replacing the lighting in two of our theaters with more efficient LED lights, purchasing an electric utility vehicle for use on one of our satellite campuses, and adding a 2500 square foot green roof space to our newest academic building.



PROCEDURE

This was an intiative passed through our Student Government Association and was put to referendum to the students at large. It passed that referendum which allowed for the fund's creation.



FUTURE PLANS

We plan to continue to get the word out about the fund and potentially even expand the fund if the demand grows high enough.
