About $22 of each student’s activity fee goes to funding projects that improve campus sustainability. The program, called the Student Campus Greening Fund, gathers student proposals that encourage sustainability on campus. GMC students then vote on each proposal. The SCGF fall 2015 grant update below was compiled by Carl Diethelm, director of the Student Campus Greening Fund.
