Green Mountain College, VT Student Campus Greening Fund
The Student Campus Greening Fund is a student-run program designed to help put into action greening initiatives that increase awareness and decrease the school’s ecological impact. Every GMC student contributes to the fund through a $30 allocation from the college activities fee. Students design projects and submit proposals, and awards are based on a student vote.
In the most recent funding round, five proposals received the full amount requested for a total of $28,988. The money will be used to construct a campus yurt, install additional bike racks, purchase outdoor recycling bins, use bio-diesel in campus maintenance equipment and upgrade the alternative energy systems that power the farm greenhouse.
