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

The Sustainable Campus Initiative Fund (SCIF) is the University of Utah’s green grant program. Students, faculty, and staff from all disciplines and departments are invited to propose projects that enhance the sustainability of our campus and community. SCIF encourages ideas that operate at the crossroads of academics and operations and work to facilitate collaborative efforts among diverse members of the campus community.

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

SCIF Allocations Committee
• The Allocations Committee has authority over SCIF. A three-quarters (3/4) majority of the Committee’s full membership is required to make funding and any other official decisions, except as provided for elsewhere in these bylaws. Apart from his/her normal function as a part of this committee; a member has no individual authority. It is the duty of the Committee members to:
• Review project applications and determine allocation of funds.
• As deemed necessary by the SCIF Grant Coordinator assist to employ, discharge, supervise, and prescribe the duties of all staff and interns of the Sustainable Campus Initiative Fund.

The makeup of the SCIF Allocations Committee is detailed in the Attachment.
