The Sustainability Advisory Committee welcomes applications for projects that will advance the university's sustainability efforts and improve the university's rating under the Sustainability Tracking Assessment and Rating System (STARS). A project should either be research that is connected to our current campus sustainability initiatives, or a well-designed experiment on a small scale with measurable outcomes. In either case, the ability to evaluate regarding wider institutional adoption after the conclusion of the grant is essential. A faculty or staff advisor is required for all proposals.
Proposals are evaluated based on a set of criteria judging the design and quality of the project, its feasibility, and its impact to the university and wider community.
