Student Sustainability Fund

The Student Sustainability Fund (SSF) will provide an outlet for campuses in Hawaiʻi to support programs, initiatives and events to foster student leadership and make the state a leader in sustainability in higher education.

This fund will facilitate a culture of sustainability in line with the Board of Regents’ recently adopted Sustainability Policy for the UH System, which cites goals of “carbon neutrality, zero waste & local food self-sufficiency.”

As an initiative lead by the the Student Sustainability Coalition of Hawaiʻi, the SSF is a proposal for student-funded and student-controlled funds on multiple campuses in the system.

As of September 29, 2014, 93% of survey respondents are in support of the SSF, which would establish a $4 green fee at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
