Sustainability at Willamette

A New Student-Led Fund for Sustainability Projects at Willamette University

During the Spring 2014 semester undergraduate students voted in a campus-wide referendum to establish a new $25 per student per semester "Green Initiative Fund" (GIF) fee. The GIF provides new student leadership and funding for projects that engage students and employees to advance social, economic and environmental sustainability.

The inagural GIF Committee was established through an open call for applications at the beginning of the Fall 2014 semester. The committee can be contacted directly by sending an email to

Students who do not wish to contribute to the new GIF program can opt-out of the fee between July 21 and September 15, 2014 via Web Advisor.
