The Sustainability Committee was formed as a campus collaboration to inspire, promote, and celebrate sustainability at PLU.  They are the springboard for sustainability initiatives on campus and are the best start to getting involved in your own way.

The Sustainability Committee also oversees the Student Green Fees. In May of 2007, ASPLU legislation established a $10/semester tuition increase in order to fund green energy credits and sustainability projects.  Over 20% of that fund goes to student projects each year. On behalf of student leaders, the Sustainability Committee is seeking proposals for projects to be completed in the 2014-2015 academic year.

The Green Fee fund could fund one ambitious project or multiple smaller ones; we are open to requests for any amount.

 Here is a list of the project charters for past projects that have utilizes the Green Fees.
