What is the GRF? Primarily, it is a fund that supports energy efficiency projects here on campus, BUT it also has a portion available for projects proposed by Champlain College community members.
The GRF aims to fund projects that:
Promote awareness and understanding of sustainability in education, campus culture and behavior
Directly or indirectly reduce Champlain’s environmental impact
Encourage student participation, learning and leadership
Engage members of the Champlain community
Use funding cost-effectively
How might you use this?
- Faculty: create an assignment around the GRF, as they do for the Corporate Social Responsibility classes; bring a class project to the implementation phase, as Robin Collins did with an idling project in her Environmental Earth Science class; or bring a speaker to campus to support your class content.
- SGA clubs & Student leaders: to help fill a budget gap for a project you think important for the Champlain College community or to bring a speaker to campus to motivate your in- or out-of-class learning.
- Employees & students: to bring an idea to reality that you think would make Champlain a more sustainable campus.
