As part of the SGA Green Fee fund established for campus-wide sustainability programs, YHC students pay a $5 per semester green fee and the College matches the student contribution. In September 2011, SGA finalized a Green Fee application process that enables students, faculty and staff to submit suggestions regarding how to best utilize the budget provided to SGA by the Green Fee.

So you think you can change the world with one phenomenal idea, right? Great, so do we! Just fill out this simple application and turn it in at the Office of Student Development. Applications will be reviewed once a month.
Here are a few things you should know:
1. The first step in this process is filling out this Sustainability Application. There are members of the faculty and staff on campus that are passionate about sustainability and are willing to help if you have any questions. Their contact information is listed below.
2. You will be asked to set up a meeting with the SGA Sustainability Committee to discuss any concerns or ideas that were not addressed on this application. Then, if we like your idea, you will be asked to attend an SGA meeting to present you request. SGA will then vote whether or not to support your project.
3. The last page of this packet is yours to keep. It is a reminder to you about your project. So keep it, and we’ll contact you on the date listed to inform you if SGA is interested in helping you with your idea.
4. Finally, once your project is completed, you will be asked to attend an SGA Meeting to present your finished project. We will be excited to see how you made a difference on campus!
Please contact SGA Sustainability Committee Chair Emalyn Cork with any questions.
