Dining is working with students to upgrade the controls for the kitchen ventilation systems to reduce energy use.

Dejope Bird-Friendly Windows | Fall 2023 | $12,750

Students are working with Housing to add dots to the north-facing windows of the Dejope dining room to make the glass more visible to birds to hopefully avoid collisions and death of wildlife.

Free Food Alerts | Fall 2023 | $5,000

This project will pilot the use of an application that allows food providers and campus community members to connect when excess food is available, reducing waste and improving food security.

Have an idea that addresses the environmental footprint, social impact, and operating costs of on-campus facilities? Green Fund staff can assist with proposal development at any time. Please contact Green Fund Program Manager, Ian Aley.
