A brief description of the institution’s sustainability projects fund:

This $1.75 per full time student, per semester fee provides funding to innovative student-led campus projects relating to alternative energy and green infrastructure to further the university's goal of carbon neutrality by 2030.

A brief description of the multi-stakeholder decision-making process used to determine which projects receive funding through the sustainability projects fund:

This fund will be controlled by the Director of Sustainability position that is currently not filled. The fee is new and no projects have been funded as of time of reporting. The proposed method for funding allocation decisions would be the review of projects proposed by students that intersect with organizational priorities by a board of vested members. This board would be lead by the Director of Sustainability and include the Sustainability Center Coordinator, a representative from the Division of Finance and Administration, and the Director of Sustainability from the Associated Students of the University of Idaho.
