Campus Sustainability Fund

Fall 2016 marks the first time that Campus Sustainability Fund is available at UW-Platteville. This competitive grant program for UW-Platteville students, faculty, and staff exists with the purpose of enabling campus to better "meet the needs of the present while also enhancing the ability of future generations to meet their own needs" (the official UW-Platteville definition of “sustainability”). Funded by University Segregated Fees and distributed by the UW-Platteville Environmental Sustainability Committee, we expect to announce the 2017-2018 grant cycle in fall of 2017.
