Sustainability Fund (S.A.F.E.)

Beginning in the fall of 2015, all students pay an annual $30 fee that provides a fund to support campus projects that promote the environmental, social and financial sustainability of the Southwestern community.

Sustainable Advancements Funding Endeavor (S.A.F.E.) projects can be proposed by students, faculty, and staff, with priority given to student proposals and to projects having no other funding sources from Southwestern University. The S.A.F.E. will support projects that:

  1. Promote various dimensions of ecological sustainability, energy efficiency, and environmental knowledge/awareness;
  2. Promote social sustainability including environmental and social justice, diversity, and/or the public health and well-being of the campus community;
  3. Promote economic sustainability, fiscal responsibility, and/or the long-term financial health of Southwestern University.
