Green Fee

What is the green fee?

All full-time students pay a $10 Sustainable Campus Fee, commonly known as the Green Fee, each fall and spring semester. This fee was initiated by students and began in 2007. The purpose of the fee is to support projects and practices that make our campus more energy efficient, environmentally friendly and sustainable.

In the spring of each year, the Sustainable Campus (Green) Fee Committee, with representation from students, faculty and administration, invites proposals for use of the fee. The committee then makes recommendations for funding, which must be approved by the president. The committee has also invited all students, faculty and staff to submit ideas on how the fee could be used to make our campus more sustainable. In 2010 approximately 70 members of the campus community submitted ideas, many of which are represented in funded projects.

For more information on the Green Fee, contact Dr. Daniel Bureau, Director, Student Affairs Learning and Assessment and Special Assistant to the Vice President for Student Affairs, at 901.678.2826.
