In Spring 2011, an amendment to the $5.00-per-semester student Solar Fee Referendum passed, expanding the purpose of the solar fee from strictly solar energy projects to include a broader range of sustainability-related projects on the campus. In Fall of 2011 the Green Action Fund formed, approving the first projects in Spring of 2012. In the Spring of 2013, the sunset on the solar fee was extended and the name changed to the "Green Action Fund Fee" in a special election. Check out our Completed and Approved Projects to learn more.
The aim of the Green Action Fund is to reduce the ecological footprint of UCCS and promote sustainable environmental, social and economic values through a variety of student-sponsored projects. YOU can create a project that helps to make our campus more sustainable.
This fee presents an exciting opportunity to support a broader range of campus sustainability projects, providing monies in these financially challenging times for projects that students desire to implement. It offers students an opportunity to become more active participants in determining their own future and the future of their campus.
