Student Green Fee

 

green fee sticker

Look for the Green Fee sticker around campus

In the fall of 2005, by request of student vote during SGA elections, the student facilities fee was increased to establish funding for green power and campus sustainability initiatives. This green fee (officially known as the Student Environmental Initiatives fee) is administered by the Student Environmental Initiatives Committee as a representative body of students, faculty, and staff. The mission of the committee is to identify, research, and recommend uses of funds supporting environmental stewardship and sustainability as well as clean and renewable energy technologies. The committee’s charter was revised and adopted in April 2014.
