Want to convert Old Main’s roof to a green roof? Want to establish a bike share program on campus? What about a sustainable film festival? Or hybrid maintanance vehicles? 

 

The Green Energy Fee (GEF) is a student-initiated, quarterly fee paid by all Western Washington University students to reduce the campus' environmental impact and engage the campus community in environmental awareness. 

 

The GEF Grant Program provides funding to innovative, student-driven projects focused on promoting experiential learning opportunities and sustainable practices at Western Washington University. Students, staff and faculty are all eligible to apply for grant funding. Projects funded through the GEF Grant Program aim to:

 

  • Increase Student Involvement and Education
  • Reduce the University's Environmental Impact
  • Create an Aware & Engaged Campus Community

 

Any idea, big or small, is welcome!
