SGA Green Fee Application

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.

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 who are passionate about sustainability and are willing to help if you have any questions.

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 complete, 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!
