While built environments provide people and society with a lot of benefits, they also have significant influence on our environment. According to EPA, people in the United States spend more than 90% of their time in the built environments. However, many of them feel less engaged with buildings since they have limited access to the information and knowledge about the buildings such as how the air is heated within the buildings? Many studies show that this lack of engagement will influence how comfortable occupants feel and how much environmental awareness they have within buildings.

Campus Sustainability Fund Bike Tour

Join us on September 27th from 1:30-3:30pm for a 4.5 mile Dawg Daze tour of on-campus, sustainability projects funded through the CSF. We are a student-run, student-funded grant organization that makes available over $300,000 a year for on-campus, student-led sustainability projects. Since our founding in 2010, we've funded 80 projects; a handful of which we'll visit on the tour! Please RSVP via our Facebook event page.

CSF Doubles Mini Grants Program

We proudly funded eight project teams in the second year of the CSF Mini Grants program. Comparatively, last year we funded four. Mini Grants are CSF grants up to $1,000 which are processed through a streamlined application process. Although Mini Grants only accounted for 2% of our annual project funding, they engaged 20% of the students working on CSF projects this year. The program is not only cost-effective, but also provides a lower barrier means through which students can access CSF funding.
