The Joint Committee for Environmental Sustainability (JCES) is made up of students, staff, and faculty from across campus. Each academic year, the Chancellor gives the committee his charge. Part of the responsibility of JCES is to assist in overseeing the Green Fund application process. Applications are submitted to JCES for review, and members voice their support based on criteria set forth in the Green Fund bylaws. The committee also assesses and brings forth sustainability "Best Practice" concepts for discussion.
