University of Memphis Green Fee Sustainability Projects – 2011 Supplemental Funding Cycle

The Green Fee Committee is seeking ideas and proposals for the Fall 2011 Supplemental Funding Cycle. 

The Green Fee generates approximately $360,000 per year from students to be used to make the University of Memphis campus more sustainable. 

There are two ways to participate in this process:

Proposals:  In a proposal, you are actually seeking funding from the Green Fee.  The person(s) and/or department(s) submitting a proposal must be capable of managing the funds in a university account and actually carrying out what is needed to fulfill an accepted proposal.  The Green Fee Committee will review proposals and make recommendations to the president of the university on allocation of the Green Fee funds.  For more information and/or to make a proposal, go to

Ideas:  An idea is simply that, your thoughts on how the Green Fee could be spent.  You do not need to be able to actually carry out a project envisioned in an idea.  It may be a suggestion as to how the university could spend Green Fee funds to make the campus more sustainable.  The Green Fee Committee will review ideas and consider them in making recommendations to university departments on future use of the fee.  Last year, many of the ideas that were submitted were included in funded projects.  To send an idea to the Green Fee Committee, go to

To receive consideration, all proposals and ideas should be submitted by 4:00 pm, on Monday, November 7, 2011.
