The EC serves to review and recommend for available funding "Green Initiative" proposals submitted by members of the campus community based on the project's feasibility, affordability, and potential impact on the environment.

Membership:The Council shall be made up of three faculty appointed by Faculty Senate, two staff members appointed by Staff Council, and two students appointed by SGA. Additional members shall include the Director of Environmental Health & Safety, the Director of Contracts and Properties, a Facilities Services Representative (appointed by the Director of Facilities Services). Appointed student members serve a one-year term, faculty/staff members serve a two-year renewable term. The Director of EH&S may appoint offices of the council as appropriate. The Environmental Health & Safety Senior Administrative Assistant serves as the committee secretary.

Student members may be re-appointed for a second year after serving an initial one-year term.  A student must maintain full-time student status to remain on the Council. A vacancy exists when any representative of the Council resigns his or her position on the Council or when a faculty or staff representative completes the  appointment term or terminates employment with the university.
