In response to the student body's desire to further sustainability on campus, the University Administration has established a fund to support related projects. The Student Sustainability Committee is charged with administering this fund which is available through a grant application process.
In order for projects to be considered for funding the following rules apply:
Funds will be allocated each year to students, faculty, and staff for one-time only projects through the agreed upon process.
Continuing initiatives will need another permanent source of funding.
The sustainability fund cannot be used to pay employee or student worker salaries.
All University policies and procedures such as procurement rules must be adhered to when allocating the resources.
When additional funds are required from other sources, all commitments for these funds must be agreed upon in writing before an initiative can be approved.
If projects require a scheduling or time commitment from one or more University departments, there must be an agreement in writing before the project can be approved.
All departments that the initiative will touch must be consulted before the project begins, even if there is not a time or resource commitment required.
