What is the AS Sustainability Fund? In 2006, students voted to increase their fees by $5/semester to support the creation of the AS Sustainability Program and Fund. The majority of this money goes into the AS Sustainability Fund which makes available approximately $60,000 annually for student-driven projects. Funds are awarded once each semester by the Sustainability Fund Allocation Committee (SFAC). If you're interested in serving on this committee, please contact the AS Vice President for Facilities and Services at firstname.lastname@example.org. Typically, the at-large seats are for a one-year term and are filled at the beginning of the fall semester.
