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

Charlotte Green Initiative (CGI) is a student-led initiative in which the Student Government Association designates $1 per semester per full-time student. These funds are allocated to projects by a student committee (mentored by staff from the Office of Sustainability).

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

Proposals are submitted to the Charlotte Green Initiative committee. Project proposals must describe the benefit to campus sustainability. Students, staff and faculty can apply, but a benefit to students and the campus is expected. Large Proposals (>$500) or proposals installing equipment must have a campus unit as a sponsor to ensure continuity and maintenance. Proposers and sponsors are invited to a meeting to pitch their proposal and answer committee questions. The committee has up to 13 student members, and proposal approval requires a majority vote.
