Thank you for your interest in the We Mean Green Fund (WMGF) Committee! The We Mean Green Fund is a funding resource available to UNT students, faculty, and staff who have project ideas they’d like to implement and lead on campus to increase environmental sustainability efforts at our university.
We Mean Green Fund Committee members serve as ambassadors for the We Mean Green Fund. They evaluate project proposals developed by UNT community members and recommend the allocation of funds from the student Environmental Service Fee to support environmental campus initiatives. In addition to allocating funding to new sustainability projects, committee members have a platform to encourage sustainable practices and promote positive behavior changes on campus. Read about past projects that We Mean Green Fund committee members have evaluated and funded to make the UNT community more sustainable.
To maintain membership, committee members attend business and social meetings and participate in a minimum of two outreach or service opportunities each fall and spring semester during their two-year term to engage in ongoing projects and support the mission of the We Mean Green Fund.
There are 13 committee seats with voting privileges. Voting committee members include 10 UNT students and 3 UNT faculty and/or staff members.
We are currently seeking applications from students. If you’re not ready to apply yet, you may join our mailing list to be contacted about future committee seat openings and apply at a future date.
