The Sustainability Projects Funding (SPF) allocates funds to provide support for essential educational experiences and activities that aid and supplement the fundamental educational mission of CSUSM. Sustainability Projects are defined as those activities and projects that are integrally related with helping the campus meet its sustainability goals. This year ASI has allocated approximately $15,000 to SPF to fund projects that positively affect CSUSM’s sustainability efforts, reduce the University’s environmental impact, and help to “green” our campus. ASI administers the SPF through a Sustainability committee.
