Campus Community Health • HEERF I, II & III

Sustainable Campus Committee

Creating a more environmentally sustainable campus is a top priority for Tennessee Tech and its students.

In 2005, the student body voted to pay an additional $8 fee (Bill F05-01) to help pay for and implement green projects and programs. SGA voted to increase this fee to $10.00 (Bill S18-017) in the Spring of 2018 

Since then, the university has used the money generated by students to purchase a fleet of electric vehicles, institute student-run recycling and bike share programs across the campus, install more efficient lights and motion sensors to turn them on and off, and many more projects to make this campus more environmentally friendly.

Projects are selected and funds dispersed by the Sustainable Campus Committee, which is comprised of a mix of students, faculty and staff.

Recently, we have invested in the AASHE STARS Program, Green Power Switch, Project Regrind & Associated Research, along with other initiatives such as Student Outreach through things such as Earth Week Activities and the “Tree”mendous planting on campus. We are currently working towards LEED Certification for the new Science Building, but are always open to new project ideas from students on campus. You can submit your ideas through our proposal form.

Meeting Information

Our meetings are always open to students and faculty that would like to sit in. The start time is 3:30 P.M. The meetings will take place in the Facilities Conference Room, 220 W 10th Street. 

Fall 2022 Sustainable Campus Committee meeting dates coming soon!
