Sustainability: The Green Revolving Fund - $250,000
Blue and Gray Going Green
Various departments on campus have implemented green policies to cut waste and become more environmentally friendly. Even before we were awarded a grant to develop 10 acres of land into a renewable energy hub with a ground-mounted solar photovoltaic system, we were making efforts all around campus to decrease our footprint and improve our environmental stewardship.
Print Services, Dining Services, and Facilities Management have seen the greatest efforts, thus far, to help the College reduce its environmental footprint.

A Green Revolving Fund will help reduce the annual energy expenditure of the college by up to 10 percent. Donations for sustainability efforts will be used to support campus projects of all sizes focused on decreasing non-renewable energy expenses and improving campus conservation practices.
A Green Revolving Fund uses the initial monies to implement new cost-saving green initiatives that regenerate the fund over time, ensuring that there are always funds available to improve campus sustainability efforts. The Green Revolving Fund would support projects that improve energy efficiency, minimize use of material resources, and reduce environmental impact and operating expenses. Planned projects will be managed by Plant Operations as part of the Facilities and Planning Committee and will consist of internal ideas put forth by students, faculty and staff members, as well as the College’s Sustainability Committee.
There are endless possibilities to provide opportunities for enhancing sustainability efforts around campus. Any donation, no matter how small, will make a difference for the campus community.
