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:

Students recently voted to renew their self-imposed green fee of $10-$15 per term. A portion of the fee goes into the student-managed Green Fund, totaling approximately $90,000 per year for sustainable projects. The Green Fund is governed by the Environmental Affairs Committee (EAC). Projects seeking funding from the Green Fund must submit a proposal to the EAC for consideration. EAC, comprised of all students with a staff adviser, evaluates projects for their impact on campus sustainability and return on investment among other values, building skills and gaining experience in responsible investments and governance.
