What is the Green Fund?


The University of Arizona is a living laboratory for sustainability—and laboratories require funding. The Green Fund creates opportunities for students and employees to test innovative solutions to challenges in renewable energy, energy and water efficiency, waste reduction, and environmental sustainability education, research, and outreach.

Approved in March 2010 by the Arizona Board of Regents, the Green Fund is funded by student tuition. Project proposals are reviewed by a 10-member student committee, which allocates its $400,000 yearly budget to multiple projects across diverse disciplines. The UA Office of Sustainability administers the Green Fund program and provides the Green Fund Committee with advice and support.

Check out what UA students and employees have done together with Green Fund support to make the UA a more environmentally sustainable institution.
