How YOU can use the Green Revolving Fund – Next Proposal deadline is November 1, 2022

What is the GRF?  Primarily a fund that supports energy efficiency projects here on campus, BUT also has a portion available for projects proposed by Champlain College community members.

The GRF aims to fund projects that:

  • Promote awareness and understanding of sustainability in education, campus culture and behavior
  • Directly or indirectly reduce Champlain’s environmental impact
  • Encourage student participation, learning and leadership
  • Engage members of the Champlain community
  • Use funding cost-effectively

How might you use this? Consider how you (or the College) could contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Faculty: create an assignment around the GRF, as they do for the Corporate Social Responsibility classes; bring a class project to the implementation phase, as Robin Collins did with an idling project in her Environmental Earth Science class; or bring a speaker to campus to support your class content

SGA clubs & Student leaders: to help fill a budget gap for a project you think important for the Champlain College community or to bring a speaker to campus to motivate your in- or out-of-class learning

Employees & students: to bring an idea to reality that you think would make Champlain a more sustainable campus; support your senior capstone project; etc.

Have an idea for a project? Email us the idea and we’ll give you feedback on how best to proceed.
