What has the Sustainability Fund funded?
In December 2014, SSC voted to allocate its funds for three projects:
- $20,000 to the Physical Plant for a solar heating pilot project for one of the dorms.
- $5,363 to the Art Museum for the Greening of the Light Totem, which will now be powered by solar power.
- $3,965 to the RAIN Initative for the construction of a rain garden on campus.

In April 2013, the Sustainability Fund supported its first project: $10,000 for the revamping of Ballantine Hall's lighting infrastructure. New motion-sensing, energy-efficient lighting in Ballantine Hall was installed in the stairwells with the purpose of immediately reducing energy consumption and increasing long-term energy savings.

Applications for the use of the fund are now available under the "Submit your Idea" tab and are due the Friday before Thanksgiving Break!
