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 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are assessed a self-imposed sustainability fee which accumulates about $1,000,000 annually.
The Student Sustainability Committee is a funding board comprised of ten voting student members, five ex officio non-voting staff members, and six non-voting faculty members. At least three SSC student members are graduate students. SSC is responsible for allocating funds generated by two student fees--Sustainable Campus Environment and Cleaner Energy Technologies. SSC proposes funding recommendations to the Director of the Office of Sustainability for final approval.

Students are appointed by the Illinois Student Senate and serve a one-year term. Faculty and staff ex officio members are appointed by the Director of the Office of Sustainability and serve a one-year term.

Administrative support, including the full-time Program Advisor, accounting, and marketing is provided by the Student Programs and Activities Office in the Illini Union.
