This working group awards the grant money to successful applicants, works with the applicants as needed throughout the year, including connecting the applicant with an advisor if needed to assist with navigating through the University processes, obtains updates from the applicants throughout the project including a descriptive report at the conclusion of the project.

Green Liaison Working Group
The Green Liaison Committee meets 1-3 times per semester to brainstorm sustainability topics and speakers that are relevant to the UD community based on feedback from other Green Liaisons and personal interest.
They then coordinate activities (i.e. Lunch and Learns) throughout the semester to bring Green Liaisons together to discuss these topics via a speaker presentation and network with each other.
The committee also collaborates with other working groups (i.e. Campus Sustainability Day and Earth Week Committees) to help promote those activities on campus.
