CALLING ALL STUDENTS: Submit Ideas for Stetson’s Green Project

Stetson University students are encouraged to submit ideas for the school’s inaugural Revolving Green Fund project through an online survey until Thursday, Nov. 16.

The Stetson Revolving Green Fund (RGF) is 100 percent student-funded, with a $5 Green Fee paid per semester, beginning in Fall Semester 2017, to support the project and raise approximately $30,000 each year.

The RGF initiative, which was supported by a majority of Stetson students in two surveys, was approved by the University’s Board of Trustees last spring.

Once student ideas have been submitted, the Green Fund Committee will have several meetings to evaluate student feedback. They plan to select three of the student-suggested projects, which will be narrowed down to one next spring. Stetson students will get to select from those three choices in an online poll, and the project that garners the most votes will be installed on campus in the summer of 2018 by Facilities Management, said Nathan Bodger ‘19, one of the Environmental Sustainability Fellows through Stetson University’s Center for Community Engagement.

Students have until Thursday, Nov. 16, at 10 p.m. to submit their surveys. The results should be announced in December or January.
