About the Green Fee

Since 2013, UAA's Green Fee has funded students' sustainable initiatives. Ranging from a recycling competition to a bike share, projects supported by the Green Fee Fund enrich the university community, advance sustainability, and develop students' skills. 

The Green Fee was first approved by the student body in a 2011 referendum. USUAA later established the Green Fee Board, a team of community members - including three students-at-large, two members of student government, a faculty representative, and UAA's Director of Sustainability - tasked with evaluating proposals for Green Fee funding. The Board has developed a rigorous proposal process, ensuring that the Green Fee will only support projects demonstrating social responsibility, economic pragmatism, and environmental wisdom.
