Get to Know us
The Green Campus Action Plan (GCAP) is made up of 12 committee members ranging from the Director of Sustainability to a regular voting member. Meet all of our members here and learn about what GCAP is all about!
During Winter 2021, GCAP meetings will be held every Wednesday from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm via zoom. Meetings are open to all students and meeting link can be accessed under members page.
Undergraduate students can apply for a GCAP Green Grant for up to $4,000 every quarter. Past grants have been used to fund solar initiatives, atmospheric research, educational programs, and more!
The large-scale initiative fund is reserved for projects impacting the entire campus. Past projects have ranged from a bike-share program to the Sustainability Fair.
GCAP funds interns focusing on sustainability in different departments around campus. Our interns have worked at the R'Garden, R'Closet, Dining, and so many more departments.
Students can submit their research related to sustainability for a chance to be highlighted on the GCAP website. Check out this quarter's chosen submission below and feel free to submit your own research. All levels of research are welcome!
