With the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment taking steps towards achieving climate neutrality, the higher education community is staged to play an active role in affecting change towards a more sustainable future. Students, staff, and faculty alike have the power to implement new initiatives on their campus.

This session will uncover potential avenues for establishing mutlimillion-dollar sustainability funds on your campus using seven unique models, with a focus on student fees and on harnessing the power of funds by leveraging them as revolving loans. Presenter Rachel Barge is a nationally recognized environmental leader who co-created The Green Initiative Fund at University of California–Berkeley and has won multiple awards and fellowships for her work. Having launched the national student organizer training program Campus InPower, she has developed the "Raise the Funds" action toolkit based on real campus case studies and will travel the U.S. to work with institutions to help them establish large sustainability funding mechanisms.
