Does the institution have a student-managed sustainable investment fund through which students are able to develop socially and/or environmentally responsible investment skills and experience with governance?:
A brief description of the student-managed sustainable investment fund:
Northern Arizona University has a Green Fund, which is managed by the Green Fund Committee. This committee is comprised of a student majority but includes members of staff and faculty as well as the NAU Sustainability Coordinator. The Green Fund was passed by the Arizona Board of Reagents in 2010 and charges students a $5.00 fee each term. These fees are then made available for students projects, student research, or student investments. The Green Fund Committee is a resource available to the student body for project and investment coaching. The committee votes to select distribution of funds.
