Campus Sustainability Fund

Sustainability is everybody's responsibility - and your ideas help keep Paul Smith's green. Every PSC student contributes an annual 26$ dollar fee which goes directly into the fund!  PSC students, faculty, and staff develop projects and apply for Campus Sustainability Fund Grants. The Sustainability Fund was created by a group of interested students and staff in 2009. 

To be considered for funding, projects must contribute to environmental, social, or economic sustainability of the PSC campus, regional community, or global community (in descending priority).

It's Your campus, Your money, Your ideas, your vote! 

Don't just sit there! Fund it!

Check out the enery metering system project recent PSC Graduate John Buyl (class of 2014) wrote and implimented  through the Campus Sustainabiltiy Fund. New Smart Meters Help PSC Reduce Energy Use.
