Green Fund FAQ

What is the Green Fund?

The Green Fund was proposed by students and passed in a student referendum in the spring of 2008 by a vote of 2222 to 275. Each semester an amount up to $7.00 will be collected from each student and placed into the Green Fund, totaling $60,000 per semester. Applications for projects funded by this money are collected and reviewed by the Joint Committee on Environmental Sustainability(JCES), then forwarded to the Segregated University Fee Allocation Committee (SUFAC). SUFAC then moves applications on to Student Senate with its recommendations. Student Senate decides upon final Green Fund application approvals.
Students, faculty, and staff are all encouraged to propose projects from the Green Fund. We value innovation and cooperation.
