Auraria Campus Sustainability Council

One of the easiest ways to stay connected to sustainability on the Auraria Campus is to join the the Auraria Campus Sustainability Council (ACSC). This tri-institutional group of individuals represents faculty, students, and staff all working together towards a “greener” Auraria Campus. Check the events calendar for the next meeting time and location, or contact the Sustainability Officer, Chris Herr.

Sustainable Campus Program


Do you have an idea that could make Auraria more sustainable? Want to make it a reality? Thanks to the Sustainable Campus Program (SCP) student “green fee,” the Auraria Campus community has the ability to receive grant funding for sustainability projects on campus. The SCP is continually looking for projects to advance our sustainability efforts on campus in these seven categories: 

Renewable Energy
Energy Efficiency
Waste Diversion & Management 
Water Efficiency & Conservation
Education and Outreach 
Food & Gardens
Alternative transporation

To submit a proposal for funding, please follow these steps: 

1. Review the process document which outlines the process and timeline for submitting a proposal to the SCP.
2. Schedule a meeting with an SCP adviser to discuss your ideas and gain support. Email to set up a meeting.
3. Submit your completed project proposal form. Please include as much information as possible.
4. We will review your proposal and be in touch with next steps!
